Filed in Codes and Regulations by on February 28, 2020 0 Comments

In the latest episode of the NAHB podcast Housing Developments, NAHB CEO Jerry Howard and Chief Lobbyist Jim Tobin discuss the implications of a comprehensive energy bill with American Gas Association Vice President, Governmental Affairs & Public Policy, George Lowe. This legislation could include a bill from Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) with energy code provisions that would greatly exacerbate the housing affordability crisis.

Howard and Tobin also talk about the state of the presidential election and the housing plans put out by the 2020 Democratic candidates.
