The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released its long-awaited proposal "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing" in July with the intent of restructuring zoning practices in local jurisdictions and neighborhoods across the country. At a Capitol Hill luncheon event, Westchester County Executive, Robert Astorino, will present his first-hand experience with HUD's demands to sue localities over common zoning regulations in an effort to dismantle local zoning as it is known today. Cornelia Mrose, co-host of WVOX's The Steve Mayo Show, will present her original research analyzing the comments submitted for HUD's proposed rule "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing". It is a textbook case of crony advocacy. Her analysis of the hundreds of comments submitted during the comment period on the proposed ruling found that an overwhelming majority of commenting non-profit organizations are stakeholders of HUD and support the new ruling. Many of these HUD affiliated and HUD funded groups submitted comments based on engineered templates. In contrast, comments by individual citizens make up almost two thirds of all comments with a vast majority of citizens opposing the ruling.
