Astorino: Feds overreaching on affordable housing issue
ALBANY -- The federal government is withholding more than $5 million in community development grants from Westchester County because it will not do a survey of local zoning laws to find out where it is coming up short on affordable housing.
The County Executive there is Rob Astorino, a Republican running for Governor. Astorino has come under fire from the Cuomo campaign over the issue, but Astorino says the feds are overreaching.
He also challenged the Governor, who lives in Westchester County, to a debate on the issue.
