No New Revenue to Fund Items on FY13 Wish List
Just minutes ago - - - late on a Friday afternoon - - - the chief financial officer released information that there was no new revenue for FY12.
This means that the items on the Wish List, which was part of the FY13 budget, cannot be funded.
The immediate impact is that there will be no $7 million to restore homeless cuts and no $14 million for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) purposes.
We have been dealt a major blow to the DC safety net and poor people.
