The petition of the day is:


Issue: Whether a housing authority, in administering contracts under the federal Section 8 program for low income housing, may deny to participating landlords an annual adjustment in reimbursable rental rates because the owner did not produce a supporting “market comparability study”—when those contracts and federal law require that an adjustment is “automatic” unless the authority produces a supporting market study and affirmatively “determine[s]” on that basis that an adjustment is unwarranted.
