  2. establish consumer protection for the tenant, especially in foreclosure or landlord delinquency
  3. add 150,000 vouchers to the 2010 pool.  

Sponsored by Rep. Maxine Waters, with eight (as of 6/11/10) cosponsors: Reps. Joe Baca, Judy Biggert, Steve Cohen, Barney Frank, Ruben Hinojosa, Steve Israel, Barbara Lee, Pedro Pierluisi
