Minnesota lawmakers advance bill aimed at making homes more affordable

(St. Paul, MN) -- State lawmakers want to create more affordable housing in Minnesota.  

A bipartisan group of lawmakers announced the "Minnesotans for More Homes Initiative" yesterday in St. Paul.  

The proposed measure would create incentives for housing that falls in between apartments and single-family homes, such as duplexes.  

It would also ease restrictions on multi-family, mixed-income housing.
