A bill that would convert the Section 8 tenant-based rental assistance voucher program into a state-run block grant program called Housing Assistance for Needy Families was due to be introduced on April 29, 2003 by the chairman of a Senate subcommittee responsible for housing issues, according to the senator's aide. The unveiling of the bill by Senator Wayne Allard, chairman of the housing and transportation subcommittee of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, comes nearly three months after the Bush administration proposed appropriating 12.53 billion dollars in funding in fiscal 2004 for the would-be program, according to John Wood, Allard's deputy press secretary.
