BILL NUMBER:S1823 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public housing law and the private housing finance law, in relation to defining probable aggregate annual income PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To use the net income of the chief wage earner to determine rent levels for limited-profit and limited-dividend housing companies. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: The closing paragraph of subdivision one, Section 156 of the Public Housing Law is amended to exclude federal, state, and municipal taxes from the probable aggregate annual income of the chief wage earner, in determining eligibility for occupancy in limited-profit and limited-dividend housing. JUSTIFICATION: In view of inflation and rising rent levels, a person's gross income is not reflective of his actual income. This bill will make rent levels proportionate to what an individual realistically makes. This legislation is necessary to eliminate certain hardships imposed upon tenants who are hardest bit in today's inflationary spiral.
