Secretary Fudge Proposes Reinstating 2013's Discriminatory Effects Rule

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Friday published a proposal to the Federal Register that would rescind the department’s 2020 disparate impact rule and restore the 2013 discriminatory effects rule.

HUD said in its notice of proposed rulemaking Friday that it believes 2013’s Discriminatory Effects Standard, “is more consistent with decades of case law and better effectuates the Act’s broad remedial purpose of eradicating unnecessary discriminatory practices from the housing market.”
