CCUSA Urges Senate to Pass the “Housing Opportunities through Modernization Act”

CCUSA joins a broad cross-section of stakeholders in the housing affordability realm in urging the Senate to pass “The Housing Opportunities through Modernization Act” (H.R. 3700), without delay. The U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3700 unanimously on February 2, 2016. This legislation represents the best of bipartisan work and compromise.
Our nation faces tremendous housing needs. This legislation is an important step forward to address a number of significant items which have enjoyed broad consensus over the years. There is more to be done to address housing and community development needs, but H.R. 3700 represents solid progress in the right direction. The letter can be found HERE.
