Four public witnesses testified today:
- Robert Malson, Chief Executive Officer of the DC Hospital Association (DCHA)
- Marley Greiner, brought in to testify by child welfare advocates opposing the bill
- Joyce A. Fourth Clemons, Communications Director of the DC Campaign To Prevent Teen Pregnancy
- Susan Ogden, Domestic Infant Program Director at Adoptions Together
Dr. Roque Gerald and Loren Ganoe, both from CFSA, represented the executive.
No matter the objections from two of the witnesses, seems that this bill will go forward with some modifications. DCHA's Bob Malson and CFSA are expected to pitch in with additional information and some TA. Final passage will make CM Catania very happy indeed.
