More about the April 12 DMH budget hearing

The Committee on Health (At-large CM David Catania, chair) is holding a hearing on the proposed FY 2012 DMH budget today at 10:00 am in Room 123.   You can watch the hearing in person, on Channel 13 on your television or on computer using the Council's Granicus service.
  • The Committee on Health's DMH questions and answers have been posted on the City Council website.
  • The DC Behavioral Care Association will be testifying at the hearing today. Part of what they have to say is
    The proposed reduction to MHRS funding is so serious that I believe that is important for me to state, for the record for the executive branch, and for this Committee, what we calculate the impact to be. I have reviewed certified, audited financial statements for 63% of the eight largest MHRS private providers.

    Details about this are here (Word, .doc) and will, of course, be in the full DCBHA testimony.

  • The witness list was posted on this blog yesterday.
