In opening statements, Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) called the administration’s proposed budget, “inadequate at best, unconscionable at worst.” Other members of the committee expressed their concerns with the department’s total $6 billion cut to the budget, and pressed Secretary Carson as to how he planned on serving the many at-risk communities that were already underrepresented. Secretary Carson remained poised, articulate, and open as the subcommittee members took turns voicing their specific concerns. Ranking Member Rep. David Price (D-NC) started the inquiry by addressing whispers about majority calls to ignore Democratic oversight, asking if the HUD had any policy in place to ignore inquiries, requests, or questions from ranking members or members of the minority party. The Secretary gave his assurances that no such policy existed, nor would it ever exist, even when the question was repeated.Other concerns that were addressed by the committee were: the fate of people with disabilities; elimination of vouchers and the SHOCK program; Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS budget cuts and the health of the HIV/AIDS community; community blight and its fallout; funding delays caused by bureaucratic red-tape; and the underserved rural community. With each question Secretary Carson validated the members’ concerns and expressed his willingness to work in tandem to find solutions with the $40.7 billion his department has been allocated in the federal budget. “The pie is only so big,” he said. “If we can make the pie bigger, we can make more slices.” Secretary Carson went on to say that the playbook had to be changed, and that while the department was working to become more efficient by hiring a COO, nominating a CFO and CIO, and operating more like a business, there simply was only so much money to go around. Most subcommittee members were receptive to Secretary Carson’s responses and expressed excitement to work with him in the future on various programs. Rep. Katherine Clark (D-Mass), however, remained skeptical. “This budget as a whole is a recipe for killing our economy. I am baffled at how you think this is going to work.” Carson echoed his previous claims that education, mentorship programs, and a public-private partnership were long-term solutions to the housing sector’s problems. “We would never do anything to harm something we see as something thats a solution … [w]e are going to be working assiduously to make sure that we actually expand on those [programs], regardless of under what name we do it.” The subcommittee will be submitting additional questions to the HUD. Secretary Carson will have 30 days from Friday to return his response. Joey Pizzolato is the Online Editor of DS News and MReport.

Mbappe treble fires PSG into French Cup final

first_img “It was a solid, serious display full of concentration,” said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel.”After the Dortmund match (lost 2-1 in Germany), Mbappe has responded brilliantly. He uses his speed so intelligently … he is in good form.”Mbappe equalised for the away side with a simple tap-in just three minutes after Martin Terrier had given the raucous home fans hope with a neat 11th-minute opener.The 21-year-old was also key to PSG taking the lead in the 64th minute from the penalty spot. Kylian Mbappe hit a hat-trick as Paris Saint-Germain cruised into the final of the French Cup with a thumping 5-1 win at Lyon on Wednesday.The World Cup winner took his goal tally in all competitions to 30 during a win that was eased by Fernando Marcal being sent off just before Neymar put the French champions ahead in the 64th minute from the penalty spot.The defeat Lyon ends a five-match unbeaten run that included an impressive 1-0 win over Juventus in the Champions League and the weekend’s triumph over local rivals Saint-Etienne. Collecting the ball out on the left wing, he casually saw off two Lyon defenders before floating over a cross to fellow forward Edinson Cavani, who controlled the ball only for Marcal to then handle before the Uruguay striker could let his shot go.Neymar slotted home the subsequent spot-kick after confirmation of the handball by VAR, while Marcal had to leave the field after being handed his second red card.”I prefer to say nothing about the penalty,” said Lyon boss Rudi Garcia, who side face PSG in the League Cup final next month. “When you are 10 against 11 playing such a strong team it’s no longer a contest.”Mbappe made sure of the Parisian’s visit to the Stade de France next month with a superb solo effort with 20 minutes left, embarrassing Bruno Guimaraes and Marcelo before calmly slotting past Anthony Lopes.Pablo Sarabia added a fourth with a stinging low strike 11 minutes later, and Mbappe completed his hat-trick in stoppage time, tapping home Neymar’s cross after good work on the left from the world’s most expensive footballer.Saint-Etienne and Rennes meet in the second semi-final on Thursday.Topics :last_img read more
