Section 8 vouchers to be increased, or not.

Currently there is legislation that is being sought to consider allowing 200,000 section 8 voucher to being place into circulation over the next ten years. This will happen only if the financial services committee approves.

Current consideratios of section 8 housing voucher voting.
The vote on the Shelly Moore Capito amendment to only authorize new 20,000 vouchers is rescheduled to tomorrow, Thursday, July 9 at 9:30 AM (edt).

Oppose the Capito amendment.
Support 200,000 new vouchers each year for 10 years.
this consideration carries the same implementations that the National Housing Trust Fund stand for currently.
