Grassley Presses the Administration to Fix Lax Oversight of Tax Dollars at Public Housing Agencies

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa is pressing the federal government to fix its lax oversight over the billions of taxpayer dollars given to public housing agencies. Grassley’s review and media reports have exposed millions of dollars being paid to local agencies that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has classified as “high risk,” salaries for some housing agency directors that exceed the governor’s salary in their state, and sexual predators residing in public housing.
