WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 18, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) announced his plans to introduce a companion amendment that would prohibit the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) from implementing its proposed Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule.
“I am encouraged by the actions of Senator Lee to take up the efforts in the Senate to prevent the administrations ‘Assault on the Suburbs’. The proposed HUD Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule is another federal government mandate forced on the American people by an ideological administration looking to design a misguided utopian vision of local communities across the country.
“I call on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reed to allow for the consideration of this commonsense amendment and urge swift passage of Senator Lee’s efforts.”
Congressman Gosar is the original sponsor of a similar amendment in the House, which was successfully added to H.R. 4745, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2015.
Congressman Gosar and Senator Lee’s amendments are endorsed by Americans for Limited Government.
