WASHINGTON (AP) -- People who get federal help to pay for housing should be required to work, and rules that discourage them from marrying and pursuing higher-paying jobs should be changed, a commission created by Congress will recommend.
The proposals, which would extend the basic philosophy behind the 1996 welfare overhaul to housing, are among the ideas laid out in the bipartisan Millennial Housing Commis-sion's final report that soon will go to Capitol Hill. The executive summary of the 150-page report was obtained by The Associated Press.
