(July 3, 2018, D.C. Law 22-118, § 102, 65 DCR 5064.)


Section 7035 of D.C. Law 22-168 repealed § 301 of D.C. Law 22-118 removing the applicability restriction impacting this section. Therefore the creation of this section by D.C. Law 22-118 has been given effect.

Applicability of D.C. Law 22-118: § 301 of D.C. Law 22-118 provided that the creation of this section by § 102 of D.C. Law 22-118 is subject to the inclusion of the law’s fiscal effect in an approved budget and financial plan. Therefore that amendment has not been implemented.
