Housing Call: August 16, 2022

Federal updates

  • Lawmakers in the House returned from recess on Friday to take up the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which passed in a vote of 220-207. The spending package on health care, climate and taxes passed by the Senate last weekend on a party-line vote after a 15-hour session of debate ending in Vice President Kamala Harris casting the tie breaking vote. The legislation will now head to President Biden’s desk, who is expected to sign it into law this week.
  • In case you missed it, The White House and U.S. Department of Treasury hosted a summit recently on ways to bring about long-term eviction reform by building on the Emergency Rental Assistance Program. NLIHC has a recap of the summit here.
