Sorenson requested a briefing next month on the HUD appropriations legislation.  He said all of the funds HACSA uses are federal taxpayer dollars that come through the annual appropriations of HUD.  He thought it was important for the Board to know there is a proposal in the State of the Union Address tonight that will not increase federal funds for certain domestic departments.

Abel reported that  February 1 is when they are supposed to propose the budget for the next fiscal year beginning October 1.  He said they are expecting a freeze for three years.  He indicated that they donít have the final budgets in this fiscal year and it is an ongoing process.  He said he will come back in a month to see where they stand
