Legislation Introduced to Neutralize HUD's AFFH Rule
Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) recently introduced H.R. 482, as Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) introduced S. 103, an identical piece of companion legislation in the Senate. While the Fair Housing Act has been in place since 1968, it wasn’t until the Obama administration when a rule was put in place enforcing affirmative action by local communities to assess fair housing issues through collected geospatial data. The proposed legislation would void the 2015 AFFH rule and 2015 AFFH Notice relating to the Assessment Tool.
