Industry Speaks with One Voice on Lobby Day
Lobby Day participants broke records with more advocates than ever before helping their members of Congress understand the industry and its issues.
Four hundred industry members met with hundreds of members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, or their staffers, on March 18, telling them that they represent a strong $1.3 trillion industry that helps today’s 37 million renters live in a home that’s right for them.
Advocates discussed three critical issues – restructuring immigration policy, enhancing the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and reforming the tax code. By their accounts, their messages were understood and well received.
According to Robert Chesson of Landlord Law Firm, "NAA Lobby Day was amazing! We learned so much from NAA and appreciate all of the support. We look forward to taking this experience back to Connecticut and becoming industry advocates."
