NJ New Rules for Affordable Housing

by Associated Press


New Jersey's affordable housing board meets

New Jersey's Council on Affordable Housing is expected to reveal its latest plan for how much housing should be made available to lower-income people in every town.

The council is scheduled to meet Wednesday and take action on the plan, which has not yet been made public.

Gov. Chris Christie has tried to disband the state agency, but courts have said that he cannot do so unilaterally. They have ordered the council to come up with a new allocation of affordable housing to replace the one that expired more than a decade ago.

The state Supreme Court has given the council until November to adopt the new rules.
