Public Housing

June 1956
New Republic;6/4/56, Vol. 134 Issue 23, p6
This article focuses on public housing in the U.S. The Senate Banking and Currency Committee is deadlocked, on Senator Herbert Lehman's measure directed exclusively to the housing problem of middle-income families. These families comprise at least one-half of those displaced by the wide-spread urban redevelopment programs under way throughout the country. Republican leadership in the Senate fought hard for a measure that would have limited public-housing construction to 35,000 new units annually for two years, instead of 135,000 for three years provided in the successful Democratic-sponsored bill that now goes to the House.
