State Legislative and Regulatory Issues – What’s the latest? Our April Tallahassee lobbying trip both fun and successful!

As some of you are aware, the Florida Home Builders Association held its annual Spring Legislative Conference in Tallahassee.

Enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform

The home building industry, with the contribution of a substantial immigrant workforce, plays a critical role in sustaining the national economy and meeting the nation’s housing needs. It is estimated that more than 20 percent of the building industry’s workforce is foreign-born, making the immigrant population key to meeting housing demand and sustaining growth in […]

In addition, the QRM plan includes several other bad ideas that would seriously impact the average family’s ability to affordably […]
