Twenty-eight members of the Building Industry Association of Central South Carolina visited Washington last week to discuss housing issues with Senators Lindsey Graham (R) and Tim Scott (R) as well as Representatives James Clyburn (D), Mick Mulvaney (R) and Joe Wilson (R).
It was a family visit for some. “We encourage members to bring their children,” and get a firsthand look at the political process when they make their annual trek, said EO Earl McLeod.
Members took the opportunity to present the home builders’ point of view on the new HUD closing rules, definitions for “waters of the United States,” the president’s Executive Order on development in the floodplain, and the Lead: Renovation, Repair and Painting rule.
