March 17 Update: This is tomorrow. Sorry we have not provided you with more information the crime bill. Hope to have more soon.
Borderstanians: More info to come in the next couple of weeks. But if you are willing and able, you can wade through the official notice for the public hearing on Wednesday, March 18, in the D.C. Council of:
- Bill 18-138, the “Omnibus Anti-Crime Amendment Act of 2009”
- Bill 18-151, the “Public Safety and Justice Amendments Act of 2009”
- Bill 18-152, the “Hot Spot No Loitering Zone Act of 2009”.
We will try to provide you with some easy to undertstand points of what these bills include and what they mean. In the meantime… here is the official notice from the Council of the District of Columbia Committee on Public Safety and the Judiciary.
The notice below is from ANC 2F-06 Commissioner Michael Benardo via Logan Circle News. Even though District 06 is not within the Borderstan boundaries, this meeting may be of importance to some readers:
The City Council’s Committee on Public Safety, chaired by Councilmember Phil Mendelson, is holding a public oversight hearing on Strategies to Combat Prostitution, on Friday, November 7th at noon. Many people from the Logan Circle/Shaw community participated in the last hearing, which was probably two years ago. Since prostitution continues to be an issue, please consider participating at this hearing.
