"Five Florida cities rank in the top 20 for fastest rising rent prices in the United States.

House Democratic leadership is criticizing previous lawmakers and the current Governor for their inaction addressing affordable housing issues.


Rep. Fentrice Driskell criticized a process called sweeping, where money allocated to affordable housing gets diverted to the General Revenue Fund for other things. The Legislature has swept more than $2 billion from affordable housing in the state since 2007, according to the Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added]."
