Stricter oversight of Seattle Housing Authority

I suggest you place stricter rules and oversight for the Seattle Housing Authority Voucher Choice Program (Section 8). While this is a great program in spirit, the system is unable to effectively eliminate fraud and abuse of the program, due to it's own rules and regulations. Train the employees properly, and tighten the rules (verifications, random check-ups, proof required, zero tolerance for violators) so those who really need this service are the ones to get it, saving tons of taxpayer money in the process!
