A bill that could bring more money to the New York City Housing Authority is expected to arrive on Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s desk this week.

Currently the state and city provides public housing residents a shelter allowance equal to approximately a third to the shelter allowances of those living in privately owned housing. more By John Celock
