HBA Presents Defender of Housing Award to Rep. Yoder

HBA board members thanked Congressman Kevin Yoder for his support of the home-building industry at the October board meeting by presenting him with the NAHB’s Defender of Housing award. Afterward, Yoder toured a New Mark Homes job site in Terrybrook Farms.

The Defender of Housing Award recognizes courageous federal legislators who have demonstrated strong support for housing and NAHB positions on key issues facing the industry. Rep. Yoder has been a tireless advocate for housing and homeownership during his time in Congress.

He recently co-sponsored important legislation to improve the low-income housing tax credit and signed a letter to the administration calling for a new softwood lumber deal with Canada. Additionally, Congressman Yoder has voted time and again to support reducing the regulatory burdens heaped on home builders.

The HBA greatly appreciates his support of the housing industry.
