Fair Housing

Attor­ney Gen­er­al Ken Pax­ton State­ment on Argu­ments before the U.S. Supreme Court in TDHCA Case

“The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs has, in good faith, followed the preference under federal statutes for awarding tax credits to housing developments in lower-income Texas communities. For that, the Department was hauled into court and sued under the Fair Housing Act. The Fair Housing Act rightfully prohibits intentional acts of discrimination, and the district court found that the Department didn't commit intentional discrimination. We believe we have strong arguments in this case and that the law is clear.”
