Comment on B20-825, the "Youth Offender Accountability and Rehabilitation Act of 2014"
CM Tommy Wells (Ward 6 and chair of the Committee on Public Safety and Justice) has announced the committee will collect public comments on B20-825, "Youth Offender Accountability and Rehabilitation Act of 2014" via MadisonDC. The use of this open platform is not to replace the public hearing taking place October 22. Instead, this online tool will, according to the press release, "ensure that as many residents as possible have the chance to weigh in on this important legislation..." The deadline for submitting comments via MadisonDC is October 30 at 5:00 pm.
