Call to Action: Senate FY 2019 Spending Bill Amendments Put Housing Resources at Risk

Posted By Administration, Thursday, July 26, 2018

The Senate is currently debating H.R. 6147, a package of four spending bills for fiscal year (FY) 2019 that includes the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development (THUD) spending bill. NALHFA is urging members to contact their senators to oppose harmful amendments to the measure that would threaten our nation’s efforts to provide fair housing opportunities to families and would put critical housing resources at risk.

 

These amendments could be voted on as early as today, so please contact your senators as soon as possible and tell them to oppose:

  •  Senate Amendment 3520—Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) proposed this amendment to prevent HUD from implementing and enforcing the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule. The AFFH rule is a clarification of existing fair housing laws and provides state and local governments with tools to invest housing resources in a fair and effective manner.
  •  Senate Amendment 3431—This amendment proposes HUD create a plan that would eliminate “fragmented, duplicative or overlapping” housing assistance programs. This amendment proposed by Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY) would put critical affordable housing resources in jeopardy.

 

Take Action Today!
