Subject: D.C. Council Budget Oversight Hearings

Neighbors,

It is budget season for DC government! Tomorrow, Tuesday, April 4, the Mayor will release her proposed budget for the District government for the next fiscal year. That budget is then considered by the D.C. Council, which will hold a hearing for each agency to go over their proposed budget and make any changes.

Councilmember McDuffie strongly encourages Ward 5 residents to sign up to testify and allow your budget priorities to be heard. Below is general information and a schedule of the budget hearings for the agencies we hear the most about from residents.  To gain more information and to see a complete schedule of hearings, please visit this page on the DC Council website:  http://bit.ly/2oDhyCU.

What are budget oversight hearings?

Every year, following the release of the Mayor’s proposed budget, the D.C. Council holds budget oversight hearings to review the proposed budget of each agency in the District of Columbia government.  Along with the leadership of the agencies, the public is invited to give testimony and comment.

Why are they important?

This is truly one of the best opportunities for residents to speak directly to their priorities and how the government should spend its money. 

What is the process for submitting testimony?

Constituents wishing to testify should notify the contact for each committee via email or phone no less than 48 hours prior to the hearing. 

What are the hearing dates for each agency?

Budget oversight hearings begin after the budget is released on Tuesday, April 4 and continue through May 11. We have highlighted some of agencies that seem to have the most interest below. You can also view this info, as well as info on ALL agencies hearing dates/times, on Councilmember McDuffie’s website: http://www.kenyanmcduffie.com/2018-council-budget-oversight-hearing-schedule/
