Monday, June 9, 2014


Today the Obama Administration released their statement of opposition to Rep. Tom Latham's (R., IA) Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015. In particular, the White House notes that,
The Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 4745, making appropriations for the Departments of Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015, and for other purposes. The bill fails to make needed investments in our Nation's infrastructure, provides insufficient support for critical housing programs for low-income Americans and the homeless, and includes objectionable language provisions.
Discussion of the bill is complete with  talk of TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) Grants, HAWK (Homeowners Armed With Knowledge) Demonstration Projects, and of course promotion of the Administration's latest GROW AMERICA proposal. 

Rep. Latham's bill has been reported out of committee and will soon be considered by the full House.
