Public Hearing - For-Hire Vehicle Loitering
This public hearing is for the purpose of gaining advance public and industry feedback on potential revisions to the definition and regulations relevant to the loitering of vehicles-for-hire which appear in Title 31 DCMR §§ 819, 821, 828, 1402, 1403, 2000, and 9901, and is not for seeking comments under the Administrative Procedures Act (D.C.
