Kaine Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Housing Discrimination Case

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision affirms the importance of fighting the effects of housing discrimination, whether intentional or unintentional. As a former fair housing attorney, I have seen how communities can be harmed by inequitable housing policies. We have made significant progress towards ending housing discrimination since Congress first passed the Fair Housing Act in 1968. I celebrate the Court’s decision today which will allow us to continue that progress.”
