Job Creation Proposal President Obama is planning to release a proposal for job creation this Thursday, September 8. The Alliance is hopeful that it will include provisions for people at the bottom of the labor market. The President's proposals will need to pass Congress before they are enacted; therefore, Congress is also expected to take some sort of action on jobs creation in the remainder of the year.
Section 8 Reform Finally, Congress is expected to move forward with its work on Section 8 reform. For more information on Section 8 reform and the current proposals being considered in Congress, please visit our website.
