Resolution approving the rescindment of a term and condition included in the Fiscal 2018 Expense Budget

 

By Council Member Ferreras-Copeland

 

Whereas, On June 6, 2017, the Council of the City of New York (“City Council”) adopted the expense budget for fiscal year 2018 with various programs and initiatives (the “Fiscal 2018 Expense Budget”); and

Whereas, The Fiscal 2018 Expense Budget adopted by the City Council included several terms and conditions attached to units of appropriation in the budget; and

Whereas, One such term and condition, attached to unit of appropriation number 107 in the Fiscal 2018 Expense Budget for the Department of Social Services, provides that “Eligibility for legal representation provided through funds in unit of appropriation 107 for unrepresented, detained individuals in removal proceedings occurring in immigration court in New York City shall be based solely on income”; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, The City Council rescinds the term and condition attached to unit of appropriation 107 in the Fiscal 2018 Expense Budget for the Department of Social Services.   Such rescindment shall apply to both the expense and contract budgets for fiscal year 2018.
