The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a $1.5 trillion tax cut plan that would repeal several funding tools for affordable housing. San Diegans including local leaders gathered Monday to voice their opposition to the cuts.

“There would be over 10,000 families in the city of San Diego that would be without a home today had it not been for this program that’s about to be cut," Hueso said. "This is a tragedy, and we need everybody’s help out there today to lift their phone and call your congressperson and demand for them not to support this measure.”
