    What will the 'Due Process' procedures be? For example, will the HO's be attorneys? If not, why not? What Appeal Rights will be provided from the HO's to the MC and from MC itself? Will Police Officers be required to attend and at what level? Will this still be a 'Quasi Criminal' process with all the Constitutional Rights in place or will this now be reduced to a mere Civil proceeding? That is, In Personam or In Rem? In short, will it be unfortunately like the hearings that are conducted in the Parking Authority? If so, I suggest this specfic change be rejected!
