Baltimore: Hearing Set on Bill for AIDS Panel

March 4, 2003

The Baltimore City Council's Judiciary and Legislative Investigations Committee has scheduled a hearing Wednesday on a bill that would establish a commission on HIV/AIDS. Sponsored by City Council President Shelia Dixon, the bill would create an organization in city government to coordinate the city's effort to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS. Dixon formed an advisory group two years ago that recommended declaring AIDS a public health emergency in the city, studying the efficacy of the city's prevention efforts, and soliciting more money from state, federal and private sources to fight HIV/AIDS. The hearing will be held at 5 p.m. in City Council chambers in City Hall.
