Budget Testimony: DOEE

May 21, 2020

Children's Law Center Special Counsel Buck Logan recently shared his DOEE testimony with the DC Council. Buck's testimony expressed CLC's concern that proposed budget cuts that potentially could hamper DC's battle against childhood lead poisoning, which can severely and irreversibly harm a child's development. We urge the Council to ask DOEE to specify how the proposed budget cuts would affect the Lead-Safe and Healthy Homes Division and modify this aspect of the budget, as necessary, to restore critical funding for the District's childhood lead-poisoning prevention program.
