2023 National Association of Home Builders Advocacy Wins

NAHB celebrated multiple wins throughout 2023. Those wins included legislation surrounding

  • Gas stoves
  • Transformers
  • Codes
  • Tax policy
  • Workforce/labor

Much of the legislation was passed following the attendance of members from around the nation at the NAHB Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. During the conference, members engaged in discussions with their elected officials, addressing critical industry concerns. This underscores the importance of each individual's ability to influence lawmakers by communicating about the challenges they face. This principle holds true at the local level as well- you can make a difference!
