Texas Bill Limiting Education Consideration for LIHTCs Goes to Governor

Tuesday, June 11, 2019 - 10:45am

A Texas bill that would allow educational quality to be a part of the threshold criteria for eligibility for low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) allocation, but not part of the scoring system in the qualified allocation plan passed both houses of the Legislature and was sent to Gov. Greg Abbott. H.B. 1215 would expire Sept. 1, 2021, and would require a study on the effects of the law.
