Fund­ing boost for dis­abled hous­ing

Vot­ing 193 for and 228 against, the House on Thurs­day de­feated a Repub­li­can bid to add $71 mil­lion to a pro­gram that is­sues vouch­ers to help the se­verely dis­abled ob­tain hous­ing in the pri­vate mar­ket. The mea­sure sought to in­crease the pro­gram's bud­get in HR 267 to $390 mil­lion. A yes vote backed an 18 per­cent in­crease in the bill's bud­get for dis­abil­ity hous­ing vouch­ers. Yes: Fitz­patrick, Meuser
