NAHB recently provided the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) a set of priorities on housing finance/housing program issues, housing affordability/tax issues and environmental/regulatory issues that should be addressed to help get housing on track and bolster state and local economies.
“At the National Lieutenant Governors Association, we rely on organizations such as NAHB to provide valuable information on housing, finance and the role that housing construction plays in both the national and state economies,” said Morgan Mundell, NLGA deputy director. “NAHB’s insight provides NLGA members a community-level perspective on the obstacles and challenges that American families are faced with regarding homeownership.”
“In a year that will most likely see gridlock at the federal level, NAHB realizes that the work of rebuilding our nation’s home construction industry must begin at the state and local levels of government,” said Steve Gallagher, NAHB’s vice president of government relations. “NAHB’s continued involvement with NLGA, as well with other state and local organizations, is key to advancing NAHB’s message and goals.”
Working with the NLGA, the Intergovernmental Affairs division of NAHB Government Affairs submitted the association's housing and homeownership goals and priorities for inclusion in the NLGA’s 2012 briefing book outlining the lieutenant governors’ top priorities for the year. As in the past, the NLGA invited NAHB to contribute to the briefing book.
Also included in the briefing book is information on NAHB’s membership, NAHB’s mission statement, statistics on the economic impacts of housing and a breakdown of the political challenges facing NAHB and the housing industry.
