The Senate today voted to confirm Dr. Ben Carson to lead the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
NAHB has been a strong proponent of Dr. Carson, and immediately following the vote NAHB Chairman Granger MacDonald issued the following statement:
“NAHB congratulates Dr. Ben Carson on becoming the nation’s 17th HUD secretary. Dr. Carson knows that removing regulatory barriers is a necessary component of any national housing policy and that housing is key to the long-term health of the U.S. economy. NAHB looks forward to working with Dr. Carson and his new team to ensure that housing is a national priority, to promote policies that will keep the housing industry moving forward and to provide affordable homeownership and rental opportunities for all Americans.”
