Washington, DC – As American cities continue to confront serious housing and homelessness challenges, mayors are calling on Congress to act. The U.S. Conference of Mayors will host a virtual press call on Wednesday, September 29 at 11:00AM ET to discuss important housing provisions authored by Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA, 43rd District), Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, that are a part of President Biden’s Build Back Better plan and to explain the importance of prioritizing those resources in upcoming negotiations on a final bill. Representative Waters will join USCM President Dayton (OH) Mayor Nan Whaley, Los Angeles (CA) Mayor Eric Garcetti and Columbia (SC) Mayor Steve Benjamin for the discussion.
