Beall and McGuire Announce Affordable Housing Legislation

Senators Jim Beall and Mike McGuire have announced comprehensive affordable housing legislation for 2019. It’s something they have been working on for months and the comprehensive policy and funding legislation focuses on housing that is affordable for seniors, nurses, teachers, veterans and low and middle income workers. The legislation will be introduced in the coming weeks as a series of bills. The first bill, introduced this week, is SB 5. This bill is focused on funding to build affordable housing for working families and seniors and revitalize neighborhoods in communities. Beall, chairman of the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee, and McGuire, chairman of the Senate Governance and Finance Committee, have partnered to created innovative programs and solutions that address the housing crisis across the state.
