NAHB Converges on Congress

The National Association of Home Builders showed up 700 strong on Capitol Hill Wed., June 6, 2012, to implore Congress to get the homebuilding industry back on track. Specifically, builders asked for the restoration of credit flow for new housing production; the reform of GSEs to ensure a federal backstop for credit; the preservation of current housing tax incentives; the relaxation of EPA’s enforcement of the lead paint rule; and the reduction of the overreach of the federal government under the Clean Water Act. NAHB Chairman Barry Rutenberg says, “In this pivotal election year, it is imperative to ensure that presidential and congressional candidates on both sides of the political aisle understand the importance of housing and homeownership.”
