Boren Authors and Passes Housing Bill
U.S. Rep. Dan Boren, D-Okla., authored a bill to extend a home lending guarantee program for Native American families. The measure passed the House yesterday and will move to the Senate for approval.
"This program is vitally important for my district, the state of Oklahoma, and all of Indian Country," Boren said. "Native Americans have a lower home-ownership rate than any other group of Americans. Because of the unique legal status of Indian lands across the country, this program is the only option many have for a shot at home-ownership."Boren's bill would reauthorize the program through fiscal year 2012.
