H.R. 2577 Lee Amendment New Federal Fair Housing Rule (Roll Call 81)
The Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) amendment to a broad appropriations bill covering numerous departments prohibits the use of funds to carry out the "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule." ACU opposes this rule, which creates what is in effect a national zoning board directing local governments to submit plans to increase "fair housing" until local governments meet certain criteria, and supported this amendment. The Senate voted to table, or kill, the amendment on May 19, 2016 by a vote of 60-37 (A "No" vote supports the ACU position).
