Why We Fight for the Homebuilding Industry
Housing Is Important to Families, to Communities and to the Nation
The home is central to American life. It is where dreams thrive and the future takes shape. It is the place where families make cherished memories, and children are nurtured so they can build a better tomorrow for generations to come.
Housing is critical to a strong and prosperous nation. And for almost a century, national policy has acknowledged the importance of the home in American family life. The nation’s housing policies in the 20th Century contributed to the growth of the middle class and helped the United States become the most dynamic economy the world has ever seen.
Today we must ensure that those housing policies that helped build such a strong America, including a strong and dynamic New Jersey, are encouraged and pursued, not threatened by legislative and regulatory proposals that could reverse a century of economic progress. Ultimately, every housing consumer would suffer. For that reason, it is important that policy makers be fully aware of the depth and breadth of housing’s many contributions to its people and its economy.
