Some of the problems facing state officials changed with the responsibility of administering the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Property Acquisition Act of 1970 are discussed . This included a discussion of proposed federal legislation, higher replacement housing payments, and regulatory changes. Concern is expressed about the pending federal legislation S.1108 and H.R. 6256 to amend the 1970 Act. These bills incorporated controversial concepts that could compromise the integrity of the program and those charged with administering it. The language of the bills is ambiguous and will not aid in achieving uniformity ways of solving the problem of excessive interest differential payments are suggested. Consideration should be given to relief for persons who incur interim financing costs in the course of purchasing or building replacement housing. Most states believe there is gross overregulation and it is noted that this leads to greater costs and the need for more funds and manpower.
