Contact your councilmember, and the at-large members, and urge them to vote no on PR23-0150!

The legislative package consists of four separate bills:

The “Old Hardy School Disposition and Lease Approval Emergency Declaration Resolution of 2019,” the “Old Hardy School Disposition and Lease Approval Emergency Act of 2019,” the “Old Hardy School Disposition and Lease Approval Temporary Act of 2019,” the “Old Hardy School Disposition and Lease Approval Act of 2019.”

Emergency legislation needs to be approved by two-thirds of the Council. Since the Council has thirteen members, nine votes are required to pass an emergency bill; five no votes will block it. Where it can get tricky is if members abstain, the requirement is two-thirds of those voting.
