Historical and Statutory

Prior Codifications 1981 Ed., § 7-1438. 1973 Ed., § 7-1238. References in Text The "District of Columbia Appropriation Act, approved April 27, 1904," referred to near the beginning of this section, means the Act of April 27, 1904, 33 Stat. 363, ch. 1628. 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 401 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 a single Commissioner. 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 Deposit of moneys in General Fund: Section 7(d) of the Act of June 14, 1980, D.C. Law 3-70, provides that moneys maintained in miscellaneous trust funds pursuant to § 7-1438 shall hereafter be deposited in the General Fund. DC CODE § 9-1209.04 Current through December 11, 2012
