We are excited to share three key Homes for All milestones from the past month, toward the goal of securing $100 million in bonding for affordable housing in the 2014 legislature:
- In late February, the Homes for All bonding bill requesting $100 million for Housing was introduced in the House by Rep. Alice Hausman (DFL) and in the Senate by Sen. LeRoy Stumpf (DFL).
- On March 14, the Minnesota House DFL released its budget targets for the 2014 session. The budget lists target levels by category, including $20 million in Government Obligation bonds and $80 million in Housing Infrastructure bonds.
- Last Thursday, Rep. Hausman introduced HF-3250, the Capital Investment bill. This proposed legislation is consistent with the House DFL targets for housing, as it also includes $20 million in Government Obligation bonds and $80 million in Housing Infrastructure bonds. The Senate has not yet released its Capital Investment bill.
