From Washington Post:
The bill, which received unanimous support from members of the D.C. Council, goes far beyond symbolic recognition. It requires the mayor’s office to produce, fund and implement programs that support the preservation and creation of go-go music — and the culture and history it represents.
Bowser on Wednesday declined to specify how much money the District was prepared to put into its nascent go-go initiative, which will be run primarily by the Office of Nightlife and Culture and the D.C. Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment.
The conversation, she said, was ongoing.
