Connections: The Rent Act and affordable housing

Senator Kamala Harris has proposed a so-called Rent Relief Act, which would offer a tax credit to about 20 million rent-burdened Americans. Critics of the bill say it’s well-intentioned but won’t work. We discuss affordable housing policies with our guests:

  • Kent Gardner, chief economist with the Center for Governmental Research
  • Pete Nabozny, early childhood policy director at The Children's Agenda 
  • Stuart Mitchell, president and CEO of PathStone Corporation
