President Bush addressed a crowd outside the Cochran Gardens public housing complex in St. Louis, Missouri, to discuss the administration’s programs for public housing and the economy. He asked Congress to authorize $855 million in fiscal year 1992 to fund housing for low-income families. He also called for Congress to name 50 areas of inner cities across the U.S. “enterprise zones,” which will provide tax incentives to spur business investment in the financially depleted areas. President Bush also announced the Community Opportunity Act of 1991, legislation that would “enable poor citizens to tailor Federal programs to meet their actual needs.” He said the goal of the administration is to give poor people more control over their own lives. To this end, he repeated the administration’s desire to cut the capital gains tax, which he said would allow more jobs and investment to enter rundown sections of American cities. close
