Via The Hill: last week, the House added a provision (sponsored by House Republicans) to a housing bill that would require "recipients of public housing assistance to provide proof of legal residency, such as a Social Security card or passport." The measure passed 233-186, and the bill itself passed 383-83. According to the Charleston Gazette, Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) proposed the measure on the House floor.
