BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) -- Some Bremerton landlords complain the Bremerton Housing Authority has so much subsidized housing it's taking renters away from private business.

One landlord, Connie Christman, told the Kitsap Sun (http://is.gd/JNMMUT ) it's unfair competition.

The Bremerton Housing Authority has -- or is in the process of building or acquiring -- 2,256 public housing units. The rental vacancy rate in Bremerton is around 8 percent. Normal is considered 4 percent.
