The Federal Government Affairs Committee is charged with protecting the global economic progress fostered by the U.S. home building industry. Members work to stave off tax, legislative and regulatory policy changes that threaten the future of the home building industry and, ultimately, that of the American economy.
The committee monitors a broad range of federal issues that affect home builders, remodelers, developers, product manufacturers and home building industry service providers. The committee is also responsible for developing and recommending association policy in this area and communicating that information throughout the Federation.
The committee also coordinates the Defender of Housing Award, given every two years to federal legislators who advance the industry’s priorities.
