Two weeks after Maryland and Virginia ordered investigations into whether or not Washington Gas neglects gas leaks, the District of Columbia did so as well.

District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray's chief of staff has ordered the Public Service Commission to look to matters brought up in a story ABC7's Ben Eisler did in early October.

In late October, both Maryland and Virginia started investigations into Washington Gas in response to the story.
