Historical and Statutory

Prior Codifications 1981 Ed., § 2-2313. 1973 Ed., § 2-1813. Effect of Amendments D.C. Law 19-21, in subsec. (d), substituted "For the purpose of any contemplated investigation or audit by the Inspector General," for "It shall be the duty of the Office of the Inspector General of the District of Columbia to audit annually the accounts of the Board and make a report thereof to the Mayor. For the purpose of performance of such duty". D.C. Law 19-171 enacted into law Part D of subchapter IV of Chapter 28 of Title 47. Legislative History of Laws For history of Law 19-21, see notes under § 47-305.02. For history of Law 19-171, see notes under § 47-2886.01. Change in Government This section originated at a time when local government powers were delegated to a Board of Commissioners of the District of Columbia (see Acts Relating to the Establishment of the District of Columbia and its Various Forms of Governmental Organization in Volume 1). Section 402(69) of Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1967 (see Reorganization Plans in Volume 1) transferred all of the functions of the Board of Commissioners under this section to the District of Columbia Council, subject to the right of the Commissioner as provided in § 406 of the Plan. 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 Board of Registration for Professional Engineers abolished: See note to § 47- 2886.05. DC CODE § 47-2886.13 Current through December 11, 2012
