A question on November's ballot asks voters to repeal a law intended to encourage the construction of affordable housing. Proponents of the repeal say the law is being used to line the pockets of developers and doesn't create truly affordable housing options. Opponents point to some 29,000 units of affordable housing built under the law, known as Chapter 40B. We'll debate the issue with representatives of both points of view.

Guests:

  • John Belskis, chairman, Coalition to Repeal 40B
  • Tripp Jones, chair, Vote "NO" on Question 2 Campaign

This program aired on October 18, 2010.
