HBA Continuing to Bring Housing Home
Dayton and Western Ohio HBAs and NAHB Round Table with Congressman Warren Davidson
On Wednesday, May 2, members of the Home Builders Association of Dayton and Western Ohio Home Builders Association, and a representative from the National Association of Home Builders were honored to meet with Congressman Warren Davidson in Troy, Ohio.
Both HBAs met with Congressman Davidson as part of the National Association of Home Builders' Bringing Housing Home initiative, a legislative grassroots effort to showcase the impact of housing in elected officials' home districts.
On May 2, nine HBA and NAHB representatives had an opportunity to speak with Congressman Davidson, United States Representative for Ohio's 8th congressional district. The round table allowed builder and associate members of the HBA, and Scott Meyer – NAHB Assistant Vice President of Government Affairs, to discuss issues facing the residential construction, as well as the State of Ohio and the United States. Topics discussed included a need for a new softwood lumber agreement with Canada, flood insurance, regulatory reform, housing finance reform, and the labor shortage and need to address workforce development. The informal meeting also allowed Congressman Davidson to speak about his experiences in Washington, D.C., what he would like to see happen in the future, and his solutions for our region and nation.
