Officials Demand Override of HIV Housing Veto in N.Y.
A group of elected officials are demanding the state legislature override New York Governor David Paterson’s veto of a bill that would have capped the rent of HIV-positive people who receive housing assistance from the government to 30 percent of their income, according to a joint statement by the NYC AIDS Housing Network (NYCAHN) and Voices Of Community Advocates and Leaders (VOCAL). The veto override can be done with a two thirds majority vote in the Senate and Assembly.
