A tip for candidates

A tip for candidates:   DC does not have line item budget structure.

You are doing a disservice when you say you will assure fiscal responsibility line by line.   Those who do this work are not impressed with your poor grasp of the single most important piece of legislation considered by the District ever year.

And a related tip for the public:   You, too, need to understand the city does not have a line item budget structure.   In FY 2011, the city will implement across the board a division-based budget structure replacing the old PBB structure (Agency, Program, Service, Activity).   The structure is illustrated in the budget and various other places.
