Mendelson Highlights Fiscal 2023 Budget Priorities
The council voted for the 2023 local budget and took its first vote Tuesday on the Budget Support Act (BSA), which includes statutory changes that are necessary to implement the budget, such as the legal authority for specific revenue changes. The next vote on the BSA will take place on June 7. Mendelson said the new budget “changes the game for funding schools.
“With this budget, we’ll finally start getting funding to schools with the greatest need to support their at-risk students,” the chairman said. He said the University of the District of Columbia has received more funding by increasing the institution’s fundraising match by $500,000. The chairman said the UDC budget includes a $51 million increase over the next five years of the Capital Improvement Plan.
