DeMorning Links: Power of the purse


Is this building the solution to D.C.'s affordable housing ills?

Busy day today: For one, there’s an election. If you live in Ward 5, go vote by 8 p.m. if you haven’t already. For another, the D.C. Council will vote on the city’s fiscal 2013 budget today, and there’s a number of tweaks in the draft legislation unveiled late last night. The Post’s Tim Craig breaks down the big changes — including a move pumping $18 million into affordable housing by selling off a city property on K Street NE (seen above). For more info, check out my late-night tweets or review the draft legislation yourself.
