Jerry Konter, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder and developer from Savannah, Ga., issued the following statement after Congress passed the Ocean Shipping Reform Act:

“NAHB commends Congress for acting in a bipartisan manner to pass the Ocean Shipping Reform Act. This legislation will help ease building material supply chain bottlenecks that are raising the cost of housing and allow builders to increase production of badly needed affordable housing.”
