Nevada REALTORS promote Housing Issues in Washington, D.C.

midyear-logoMore than 100 Nevada REALTORS® joined thousands of their peers from across the country in mid-May in Washington, D.C., to promote issues important to homeowners and the real estate industry.
At the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, held from May 14-19, 120 Nevada REALTORS® board members, staff and other leaders of the statewide association met with members of Congress and federal officials to discuss and promote a wide range of issues, including the historically low housing supply, housing affordability, the National Flood Insurance Program and net neutrality protections to ensure equal internet access to businesses and consumers.

As part of a year-long campaign organized by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), Nevada REALTORS® also participated in events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the signing of the federal Fair Housing Act. Several events during the week focused on the importance of equal opportunity in housing and highlighted the role REALTORS® play in furthering this cause.Click here to read more.
