House Passes Two Affordable Housing Bills

The House of Representatives passed two bills in early March that supporters hope will encourage affordable housing development. HR 4351, the Yes in My Backyard (YIMBY) Act and HR 5931, the Improving FHA Support for Small Dollar Mortgages Act, both passed the House on voice vote with bi-partisan support and have been forwarded to the Senate for consideration.
