Byrne Introduces Bill to Cut Down on Public Housing Abuse

WASHINGTON, D.C. – December 03, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) introduced legislation today that would ensure accountability in public housing by cracking down on the number of over-income families who live in taxpayer-subsidized public housing.

Byrne’s bill, known as the Public Housing Accountability Act (H.R. 4133), would require income verification upon application for public housing and then once every year to ensure that families are indeed low-income and eligible for such services. Families would also be required to undergo income verification if their income changes by “an amount that is estimated to result in an increase of 10 percent or more in annual adjusted income.”
