Happy Juneteenth!! As always, it is a busy policy week in the DC Area. Here are some of the most important meetings occurring around the DC Area this week.


District of Columbia

Tomorrow at 11:00 am, the DC Council will hold another Legislative Meeting. The council members will gather to discuss various policies. One notable piece of legislation is an amendment to a bill that CLPA has highlighted in the past, "Expanding Access to Fertility Treatment Amendment Act of 2023" (B25-34), which seeks to make fertility treatments more accessible to individuals and families. Another important resolution on the agenda is PR25-0273, addressing the extension of virtual open meetings, ensuring transparency and public participation. Additionally, the council will discuss the Comprehensive Policing and Justice Reform Temporary Amendment Act of 2023 (B25-0164), aiming to bring about comprehensive reforms in the policing and justice systems.

Montgomery County

Moving on to Montgomery County, the Montgomery County Council is set to meet on Tuesday, June 20, at 9:00 am. On the agenda, we find several intriguing pieces of legislation.

Expedited Bill 25-23 proposes amendments to the Development Impact Taxes for Transportation and Public School Improvements, ensuring that the costs are appropriately allocated. Furthermore, Expedited Bill 23-23 aims to amend the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Matching Grant Program, providing crucial support to local entrepreneurs. The Montgomery County Board of Education, however, will not hold a full meeting this week, giving educators and administrators a chance to regroup.
