Editor’s note-Section 2 of Ch. 30 LMC 1997 states:
"Transition. Any certification as a minority owned business remains valid until April 1, 1998, if:
(a) the County certified the entity as a minority owned business before this Act took effect [December 10, 1997]; and
(b) the entity continues through March 31, 1998, to meet the criteria for a minority owned business in effect before this Act took effect [December 10, 1997].
The goal of awarding 20 percent of the total dollar value of County contracts to minority owned businesses remains in effect until the Chief Administrative Officer sets new goals under regulations adopted to implement this Act. This Act does not affect the validity of any minority, female, disabled subcontractor performance plan entered into before this Act took effect [December 10, 1997]."
