Update On UDC

D.C. Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) is expected to withdraw emergency legislation that would reverse recent controversial decisions of the board of trustees at the University of the District of Columbia.

Council members learned this morning at a breakfast before today's legislative meeting that Barry would likely pull his legislation and introduce a permanent bill, which takes longer to make its way into law and requires fewer council members to get approval.

Barry's bill would stop a tuition hike and new admissions policies for the school's four-year program, which were recently approved by the university Board of Trustees.

Barry did not attend the breakfast.
