PACK TKN (AKK.J COUKiKK NKWb Democratic Party Lccc/ers Planning To Push for Action on New Housing B.v Marvin I* Arrowsmlili • WASHINGTON, Dec. 27. (AP) — Democratic leaders plan to push for sction by spring on a new middle- income housing program which they expect President "Truman to present to Congress. Mr. 'rnmtan reportedly will set Jorth the general objective.? of the program in tho State of the Union message' he sends to the lawmakers » day or two alter the new session begins Jan. 3. Senate sources who have been eon-suited by the While Mouse £aid a preliminary draft of legislation already has breii completed. Tliey said the bill is beins keyed lo spnr the hnilding of homw by private industry at a price wliicli families of moderate income can afford. The emphasis, it Ls understood, will be on dwellings i-hich would sell at from $7.000 lo around $9.000. Such legislation ivould In that regard follow the pattern of a bill, sponsored by Senator Sparkman (D-Ala), which already has been | committee, approved by the senate banking SlateJ Fur Allfnliun The bill was shelved in the last- minute log Jam at the last session, but backers of the measure were promised by the leader.ship that it would eel e.nly atlpntion in 1950. The big reason action by spring •all! be sought is that a stop-gap law put through last October expire* next March 31. That measure simply continued the old program of government home Iran insurance and mortgage-buying. The aparknian Bill and reportedly the administration's new measure provide for liberalizing home loan insurance terms io make smaller down payments possible. Bolh measures are designed to supplement the public housing and shun clearance program enacted at the last session. The goaV now Is to provide homes for in-between fam- llieA whose income is too large to qualify them for public housing and not big enough to afford much of the private housing available. The administration bill is said to call for a broad cooperative housing program to be financed by feu- Ing bonds which would be purchased by private interests. By whom the bonds be issued is a matter still wider study. The cooperative housing section ftf the Sparkman Bill has proved to be the most controversial' part of the whole measure, mainly* because it provides for $1.000.000,000 In direct fovernment loans. That section nev- •r has had administration blessing »nd it met with plenty of Rcpubli- o«n opposition in Congress.
