Healthy Schools hearing postponed

The Committee on Government Operations and the Environment and the Committee of the Whole have postponed the public hearing on B18-564, "Healthy Schools Act of 2009."   The new date is March 26.

It will be interesting to see how this delay will negatively impact CM Cheh's effort to get funding for the bill in the mayor's proposed budget due out April 1.   CM Cheh has said she would do what it takes to fund the healthy schools bill.   Sure, there is the council review of the budget, but then B18-564 is competing with every possible CM and community priority.
