This item, AMNESTY FOR HOUSING SCOFFLAWS, appeared in the August 17th online edition of The New York Times:
Residents of public housing who have concealed their actual income in order to live in reduced- rent apartments will have 90 days to confess, pay up and avoid arrest. Beginning Sept. 1, the New York City Housing Authority will give amnesty to those who admit to this practice; those who don't will face criminal charges. In the last four months, the Department of Investigation has arrested 22 public housing residents on fraud charges.
