HOTLINE for Homes for Heroes?

Al Green’s bill, Homes for Heroes, seeks to assist veterans with housing. Pretty straightforward stuff to say the least. Word has it that Chuck Schumer is to help with a hotline.
From the summary, the bill seeks to :
1/ ensure veteran access to HUD housing and homeless assistance programs; 2/ coordinate all HUD programs and activities relating to veterans; and 3/ serve as a HUD liaison with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
It also, “directs the HUD Secretary to provide assistance to private nonprofit organizations and consumer cooperatives to expand the supply of supportive housing for very low-income veteran families…” The House already passed Al Green’s bill Homes for Heroes on Jun 16, 2009. The totals: 417 YEAS, 2 NAYS. Sounds like a hotline alright.
