BALTIMORE —The Department of Housing and Urban Development's inspection process is coming under scrutiny in a new report.
The report urges HUD to improve the physical inspection process and oversight of inspectors.
According to the report, Maryland had the highest percentage of failing scores from public housing property inspections of any state over a four-year period.
The United States Government Accountability Office, an independent, nonpartisan agency that works for Congress, issued the report. It shows a shocking number of failing properties in Baltimore, as the agency calls on HUD to strengthen its inspection process.
