The subcommittee heard testimony on the 1989 Housing and Urban Development Reform Act, originally intended to reduce waste and fraud at the agency. Sect. Kemp, the author of the reform package, testified on the current status of the agency that was scandal-ridden under the leadership of previous Secretary Pierce. The reform act required public notice of the availability of HUD funds, the selection criteria for funding, all decisions made by the agency, and all waivers of regulations. It also required registration of all lobbyists concerning HUD decisions, and required funding to be distributed geographically on a needs-based fair share system, where funding is awarded to projects under local competition. The secretary’s discretionary funds were replaced with special project funds for limited uses. close
