Senate IGR is also charged with finding ways to better identify runaway youth and the homeless, including developing methods to maximize existing resources that will better serve these populations.”As Senate IGR continues its deliberations through the public hearing process, I will continue to focus on sustaining a robust housing market within our state, while maintaining the cost of homeownership at levels that are affordable for persons of all incomes.
