Statement from NAHB CEO Jerry Howard on Trump’s Executive Order on Retirement Security

August 31, 2018

National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) CEO Jerry Howard issued the following statement on President Trump’s executive order on retirement security:

“NAHB commends President Trump for making retirement security an important national priority. This need is particularly acute in the residential construction sector, where most home building firms are small businesses with less than 10 employees. Therefore, I am particularly pleased to attend this event in Charlotte representing the nation’s home builders. By continuing to follow through on his pledge to reduce burdensome regulations, the president is taking an important step forward for American workers. The executive order removes needless regulatory barriers that will help more trade groups and small businesses to provide workplace retirement plans for their employees.”
