Washington Government Agencies

The United States Congress has complete authority over Washington D.C. Since 1973, a mayor has been elected for the city of Washington, D.C., who oversees the workings of the entire district; however, the right to review all laws created by the city council and the mayor reside in the hands of the U.S. Congress. The mayor and his council formulate a local budget, which needs approval of the congress.
