Local Highlights from the visit to Capitol Hill

Local Highlights from the visit to Capitol Hill

As you may have heard Builders and HBA members from all states including South Carolina and your HBA of Greenville took a trip to Washington DC for the Annual NAHB Legislative conference. While many important issues have been talked about and discussed here are several pictures of the local delegation during their meetings with South Carolina elected officials.
Here they are meeting with Congressman Jeff Duncan.  Included in these photos are Mike Freeman of ACA/Freewood ACA/ Freewood Contracting, Eric Hedrick of Cornerstone Contractors Inc, and Michael Dey of The HBA of Greenville along with the other members from South Carolina.

For more information on the National conference please take a look at the article below.
Members of the nation’s home building industry visited Capitol Hill this week, highlighting both the economic value and future potential of the industry for job creation and economic growth and making the case on policy issues that could affect the industry: tax reform, housing finance reform, immigration reform and production credit. Because the home building industry is dominated by small businesses across the nation, the sector’s growth can have widespread beneficial impacts.

Indeed, continuing to support economic growth, construction activity increased for single-family and multifamily development in April. Having grown for 22 of the last 23 months, single-family home construction spending increased 1.4% over March and is up 38.6% from this time last year.
