Council Begins Budget Gap Discussions
Members of the D.C. Council have gathered in a Wilson Building conference roon this afternoon to figure out how to close an estimated $660 million budget hole.
LL is on the scene. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray has opened the proceedings in a rather grave tone, making it clear that tough choices will have to be made. He expects the discussions to continue until Wednesday to prepare for a final vote of Friday.
Before the meeting, Ward 6 member Tommy Wells beseeched reporters: "No Twittering!"
LL has chosen not to follow that directive. Follow along @mikedebonis.
