Congress approves DC interim CFO bill
Friday - 4/19/2013, 12:50pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A bill that would allow the District of Columbia mayor to appoint an interim chief financial officer has passed the House and Senate and is expected to be signed by President Barack Obama.
Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat who represents the district in Congress, says the Senate passed the bill last night by a voice vote. The House passed it earlier this week.
Norton proposed the bill to ensure there would not be a vacancy in the office, which was created by Congress and is independent of mayoral control. The city can't budget or spend money without the CFO's approval.
Longtime CFO Natwar Gandhi plans to retire in June. Mayor Vincent Gray has established a search committee for a new CFO that includes former mayor Anthony Williams.
