November 13, 2018, Fair Housing Improvement Act

The Fair Housing Improvement Act was introduced to the Senate by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Tim Kaine (D-VA). The bill aimed to protect low income families and veterans from housing discrimination based on a person’s source of income and veteran status.

Ten states and the District of Columbia already have non-discrimination protections for housing voucher holders. However, Fair Housing research indicates that this is not nearly adequate on a federal level.

The Fair Housing Improvement Act (S.3612) was referred to the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs in 2018 and has idled there with little activity ever since.
