PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Senators Ron Wyden and Maria Cantwell spoke at the Magnolia Apartments Friday to promote a new bill that would expand low-income housing tax credit opportunities.

The new housing bill would expand the affordable housing tax credit by 50 percent.

Both senators, along with other community members spoke on why the new bill would help the people of Portland.

The goal of the new bill is to expand the gap between the number of low-income renters and the amount of affordable housing that is available.
