· Eliminating Note 1 following Section 3-2 D;

· Requiring the use of current debt service in an Owner’s budget-based rent increase request for Option 4;

· Permitting the rent adjustments in multi-year Option 4 contracts using a budget basis only if the proposed rents do not exceed comparable market rents; and

· Removing language in Chapter 16 “Other Issues” that requires original debt service to be used in budget-based rent increase requests in Option 4 to make it consistent with the language in Chapter 6.
