Further resolved that NAHB oppose any effort to enact legislation that would restrict the ability of specialty subcontractors complying with current law to qualify as independent contractors, and
Further resolved that NAHB urge Congress and the Administration to harmonize the assorted tests for classification of independent contractors in a manner that preserves, protects, and promotes the historic and present use of independent contractors in residential construction.
