Congress passes “Minibus” funding bill; preservation provisionsincluded
By Stephen J. Wallace 
On November 17, 2011, the House of Representatives and Senate passed the so-called “Mini-bus”legislation (H.R. 2112), which included funding for three of the twelve appropriation bills: Agriculture; Commerce, State, Justice; and Transportation Housing, and related agencies. A short-term “Continuing Resolution” funding the remaining federal agencies through December 16, 2011, was attached to this legislation; the current Continuing Resolution expires today. The House vote was 298-121; the Senate vote was 70-30. Congress is now in recess for the Thanksgiving break.

This provision also has a“reach back” to 2006 that allows for the project basing of previously issued tenant protection vouchers. Residents in the properties will need to be consulted about the conversion and the voucheradministrator must agree to the project basing. The provision of the PBV statute, which caps thenumber of vouchers a voucher administrator can project base at 20%, is
not 
applicable to theseconversion actions. Also, the secretary can “waive or alter” other PBV provisions, including theprovisions that deal with a voucher administrator’s plans and goals, and the 25% per project PBV capon family projects. Another provision provides $10 million to provide either Enhanced Vouchers or PBVs forcertain properties, including i) the maturity of HUD-insured, HUD-held, or Section 202properties that require the secretary’s consent to prepay; ii) the expiration of a rental assistancecontract for which the tenants are not eligible for enhanced vouchers under current law (RAPcontracts); or iii) the expiration of mortgage affordability restrictions or a HUD preservation
