(March 3, 1979, D.C. Law 2-144, § 9c; as added Apr. 30, 2015, D.C. Law 20-249, § 2(f), 62 DCR 1512.)

Applicability

Section 7005 of D.C. Law 21-160 repealed § 3 of D.C. Law 20-249. Therefore the changes made to this section by D.C. Law 20-249 have been given effect.

Applicability of D.C. Law 20-249: § 3 of D.C. Law 20-249 provided that the change made to this section by § 2(f) of D.C. Law 20-249 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.
