Baltimore City Council advances affordable housing bills

Baltimore City Council

(Baltimore, MD) -- The Baltimore City Council has advanced a pair of bills to build affordable housing amid concerns over their financial impact.

One of the two bills would require developers to build affordable housing in residential buildings that receive subsidies from the city.

The other bill would set up a tax credit to offset the cost of the measure.

The votes last night were the second of three the council must take to pass the bills on to Mayor Brandon Scott for his signature.

The council is set to take up the bills for their third and final reading December 4.
