Steve McIntyre didn't mince words when he talked about a Baltimore County plan that would block landlords from refusing to rent to low-income tenants who use federal housing vouchers. Public housing assistance should not be outlawed, but the county should not have to endure a "forced expansion of Section 8," said the president of the Greater Towson Republican Club.
McIntyre and the founders of the Baltimore County Freedom Coalition want to persuade county council members to vote against the HOME Act for Fair Housing Opportunities. The bill, introduced by County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr., prevents landlords from rejecting applications solely because tenants want to use federal Housing Choice Vouchers, commonly referred to as Section 8.
Many voucher consumers were clustered in communities on the east and west sides of the city, and proponents of the HOME Act said the bill would allow landlords to choose from more areas around Baltimore City.
