House votes to increase HUD budget by $12.6B

The U.S. House of Representatives voted this week to give the Department of Housing and Urban Development an 18% increase in funding for information technology.

The Transportation, Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill, which was lumped in with five other bills, would set aside $73 billion in gross appropriations for the department. That is $12.6 billion more than the department’s 2022 final budget, and $1.1 billion more than President Joe Biden requested for 2023.

The measure passed in a 220 to 207 vote Wednesday afternoon. Further negotiations in Congress, however, will likely eat away details ⇒
