The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to mark up the latest version of Section 8 Voucher reform legislation, the Affordable Housing and Self Sufficiency Improvement Act of 2012. This is the last committee action necessary before scheduling the bill for action. Between the subcommittee action and this mark-up, important language has been added to the bill providing for hardship exemptions for seniors with high unreimbursed medical expenses protecting current residents from untenable rent increases and future seniors from unaffordable rents that do not consider the burden of high medical expenses. The new bill includes provisions to streamline the housing choice voucher program by eliminating duplicative and burdensome requirements and makes beneficial changes to income, rent calculation, and recertification requirements.
