Carson backs off plan to triple low income rents

Politico- HUD Secretary Ben Carson is backing off plans to triple the minimum rent paid by some of the country's poorest households, citing Congress' move to defy the administration and boost his agency's budget. The proposal to increase the minimum rent paid by rental assistance beneficiaries is no longer “urgent,” due to the additional resources in the HUD budget, Carson said .  HUD in April released a rental assistance overhaul plan that would have hiked the rate paid by some recipients from $50 to $150.
