U.S Senator Todd Young to Visit Columbus Tuesday

U.S. Senator Todd Young will be visiting in Columbus Tuesday as a part of the launch of his Housing Affordability Tour.

Sen. Young will meet with Indiana realtors and other stakeholders at Hotel Indigo to discuss solutions to the housing affordability crisis.

According to Sen. Young’s Office, legislative proposals that will be discussed include:

The Yes In My Backyard Act (YIMBY Act), which would eliminate barriers to much-needed housing by requiring transparency in local land use, zoning, and housing decisions.

The Neighborhood Homes Investment Act, which would revitalize distressed neighborhoods by creating a tax credit for building and renovating homes in blighted areas.
The Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act (AHCIA), which would improve and expand the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit, providing an additional 44,500 units in Indiana alone.
