Historical and Statutory

Prior Codifications 1981 Ed., § 4-1105. 1973 Ed., § 4-910. Effect of Amendments Pub. L. 111-282 deleted "the United States Secret Service Uniformed Division," following "Columbia"; and deleted "the Secretary of the Treasury," following "Columbia". 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. DC CODE § 5-1305 Current through December 11, 2012
