HBA Recognizes Rep. Hartzler as a Defender of Housing

The HBA recently presented Rep. Vicky Hartzler with the Defender of Housing Award, which recognizes courageous federal legislators who have demonstrated strong support for housing and NAHB positions on key issues facing the industry. In doing so, former NAHB Chairman Tom Woods noted that:

  • Rep. Hartzler has been a consistent and powerful advocate for housing and homeownership during her time in Congress and, in particular, over these past two years carrying an “A” rating with the National Association of Home Builders.
  • Hartzler co-sponsored important legislation to improve the low-income housing tax credit and signing a letter calling for a repeal of the Obama Administration’s flawed Federal Flood Risk Management Standard.
  • Congresswoman Hartzler has voted to support reducing the regulatory burdens heaped on home builders, including the repeal of EPA’s misguided Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, and to improve opportunities for America’s small businesses and working families.
