Will there be a public hearing on CFSA's Medicaid spending on July 17?

Word is that Ward 6 CM Tommy Wells, chair of the council's Committee on Human Services, is going to hold some sort of hearing/roundtable on CFSA's Medicaid spending pressures on Friday, July 27.   Since the event has not been "noticed" yet to the Secretary of the Council of the District of Columbia, we don't know just yet whether this important issue will have a public airing.   There are rules governing notice and none, seemingly, have been met.   If the event happens, it is said to be at 2:00 or 3:00 pm.   This would be after the shelter hearing at 10:00 am.   More info as it becomes available.
