The three jurisdictions continue to work on an accelerated schedule to establish a legally and financially independent State Safety Oversight entity. Earlier this week, the Council of the District of Columbia introduced legislation for the establishment of the Metro Safety Commission.

Similar legislation will also be introduced in the Commonwealth of Virginia and in the State of Maryland at the start of the next legislative session in January 2017.
