The published law for H.R.4194 includes the restriction of building public housing units
[[Page 112 STAT. 2556]]
``(3) Limitation on new construction.-- ``(A) In general.--Except as provided in subparagraphs (B) and (C), a public housing agency may not use any of the amounts allocated for the agency from the Capital Fund or Operating Fund for the purpose of constructing any public housing unit, if such construction would result in a net increase from the number of public housing units owned, assisted, or operated by the public housing agency on October 1, 1999, including any public housing units demolished as part of any revitalization effort.
However, the original law proposed does not include any restriction. I looked through the amendments and was unable to find any of the amendments to include this restriction. My hunch was that it must have been H.Amdt.739, but upon looking at H.R.2 I was unable to find any restriction. My only thought left is that this restriction must have been added by the House Appropriations Committee.
How can I see exactly where and when the restriction was added, and all the people involved in that decision?
EDIT: Based off the list of actions for this bill I was able to find a conference report that adds the restriction. What's unknown to me is the exact events in this conference event, and who proposed the restriction?
