Dr. Ben Carson’s confirmation hearing was almost boring compared to the others!
While many in our industry were questioning Dr. Carson’s housing acumen, it is obvious that he is well advised by housing experts. I was pleased to hear him give praise to LIHTC; acknowledge the importance of the Section 8 platform; and, encourage public-private partnerships (e.g. RAD should benefit).
Also, I was enlightened by his criticism of the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing laws which are hindering RAD deals.
