WASHINGTON, D.C. (WALB) -

Congressman Sanford Bishop introduced a bi-partisan bill on Monday that he said would give public housing in the area a boost.

The Small Public Housing Agency Opportunity Act would simplify requirements and eliminate paperwork for public housing authorities in smaller communities.

Supporters say the bill would remove a one size fits all approach and give small authorities flexibility to operate more efficiently.
