Bipartisan Opposition to White House Rural Housing Budget Cuts

In two letters to the House and Senate Ag Appropriations Subcommittees, more than 50 members of Congress wrote to oppose the Trump Administration’s Rural Housing Budget Cuts.  Their message is simple: Rural America Needs More Affordable Housing and the Fiscal Year 2020 USDA Budget does almost nothing to address this need.

Below are the two letters:

Senate letter to Sens. Hoeven and Merkley:

Jones-Schatz Rural Housing FY 20 Letter Signed

House letter to Reps. Bishop and Fortenberry:

FY20 - USDA Rural Housing Letter
