On Wed. Oct. 14, 2015, the DowntownDC Business Improvement District's (BID) Director of Economic Development Gerry Widdicombe, delivered testimony to the D.C. Council's Committee on Finance and Revenue on behalf of the BID in support of a tax incentive package for the Advisory Board Company (ABC). Support was based on an analysis of the significant tax revenue loss for the city if ABC relocated outside of D.C. and the positive net present value from new tax revenues that would likely follow any incentive payment to ABC.
