The similar statements were made in separate interviews by Sen. \Sparkman (D-AlaJ a member of the Senate Banking subcommittee which handles housing leg- iiilation_ and Sen. Humphrey CD- Minn). . Each said the present law is too restrictive and that he will propose changes in it. Albert M. Cole, federal housing administrator, has indicated Eisenhower may ask Congress to authorize the construction of 70,000 low-rent public housing units in the next two years. Eisenhower this year asked a four-year program of $140,000 units but Congress authorized 35,000 units for each of two years. 1 Such housing projects are designed for persons in lew income brackets. The federal government pays to local housing authorities the difference between the amount of retjts collected from the tenants atld the cost of maintaining the properties. Saprkman said th e S5,000-unit limit is so hexlged in by restrictions that it is fjoubtcul whether more than 10,000 nmts a year could be built.
