May 17, 2017 Press Release

Today, 46 New Democrat Coalition Members sent a letter to President Trump on the opportunity to move a big infrastructure package tied with tax reform.

The Housing Task Force will build on previous New Dem efforts on GSE reform but will broaden these efforts to address the full housing ecosystem, including the full scope of federal housing policy, such as housing subsidies offered through HUD and the tax code. The Task Force may also make findings and propose reforms relevant to the state, local, and regional levels.
