Israel's Public Housing Law May Soon Be Revoked, Due to Treasury Pressure

Recent finance ministers have suspended the law, but resisted officials' attempts to annul it; Lapid, who heads the housing cabinet, said he would submit the proposal to the housing cabinet at one of its next meetings.

Finance Minister Yair Lapid decided on Wednesday to revoke the Public Housing Law. The proposal to revoke the law, entitled "streamlining public housing," will be submitted to the housing cabinet soon.
