A Choice of Housing Bills

November 1969
America;11/8/1969, Vol. 121 Issue 15, p411
The author reflects on the differences between the Housing legislation proposed separately by the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. He states the U.S. Representatives authorized the bill to alleviate the urban crisis. He explains while the legislative act allocates financial resources for urban renewal, mortgage funds and transit projects, the proposition of the U.S. Senators is still better. He highlights the Senate bill calls for modern construction techniques, rent subsidies and provision for low and middle income housing.
