Builders looking to send a message to Congress that it needs to take action to keep housing and the economy moving forward should mark their calendar now for the most important grassroots event of the year — the 2017 NAHB Legislative Conference.
The conference is on Wednesday, June 14 and is a day-long event that coincides with the NAHB Midyear Board of Directors Meeting in Washington, D.C.
As the housing market continues to regain its footing, a number of daunting challenges remain. NAHB believes that Congress must focus on:
- Reforming and streamlining the regulatory process.
- Ensuring that any tax reform efforts protect home owners and renters and foster economic growth.
- Enacting comprehensive housing finance reform that provides a federal backstop to ensure a reliable and adequate flow of affordable housing credit in all economic and financial conditions.
- Adopting sensible workforce development and immigration policy that will help the residential construction industry to fill open jobs and boost our nation’s economy.
Attending this year’s Legislative Conference will give NAHB members an unparalleled opportunity to lobby members of Congress to protect their business and industry, establish lasting relationships with their elected federal officials, do their part to ensure that NAHB’s issues are heard by Washington policymakers and galvanize a united front on Capitol Hill.
Especially in these challenging times, your participation can make a huge difference as various interest groups compete to push their agendas in Washington.
A strong builder turnout on June 14 will send a powerful message to members of Congress that housing must remain a top national priority.
