Last Wednesday, Sens. Todd Young (R-Ind.), Angus King (I-Maine), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), John Kennedy (R-La.), and Jon Tester (D-Mont.) reintroduced the Task Force on the Impact of the Affordable Housing Crisis Act that would create a housing task force to better understand and combat the affordable housing crisis. The task force would be formed with goals to evaluate housing costs and provide recommendations to Congress for increasing affordable housing options.
The task force would specifically look at how affordable housing impacts other areas of life, evaluate and quantify costs incurred in programs due to lack of affordable housing, and make recommendations on how affordable housing effectiveness can improve overall life outcomes for citizens.
