Historical and Statutory

Prior Codifications 1981 Ed., § 35-1809. 1973 Ed., § 35-1709. References in Text The "District of Columbia Administrative Procedure Act," referred to in Subsection (b) of this section, in the Act of October 21, 1968, 82 Stat. 1203, Pub. L. 90-614, codified as subchapter I of Chapter 15 of Title 1 [subchapter I of Chapter 5 of Title 2, 2001 Ed.]. Change in Government This section originated at a time when local government powers were delegated to the District of Columbia Council and to a Commissioner of the District of Columbia. The District of Columbia Self-Government and Governmental Reorganization Act, 87 Stat. 818, § 711 (D.C. Code, § 1-207.11), abolished the District of Columbia Council and the Office of Commissioner of the District of Columbia. These branches of government were replaced by the Council of the District of Columbia and the Office of Mayor of the District of Columbia, respectively. Accordingly, and also pursuant to § 714(a) of such Act (D.C. Code, § 1-207.14(a)), appropriate changes in terminology were made in this section. Miscellaneous Notes Delegation of functions: See Historical and Statutory Notes following § 31- 5002. Department of Insurance abolished: See Historical and Statutory Notes following § 31-5002.
