With the General Assembly session winding down, our bills are doing great -- and Heidi has the latest update, including an interview with Delegate Tag Greason, sponsor of our first-time homebuyers savings plan bill.
U.S. House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) released a draft tax reform plan today, and the National Association of Realtors® was quick to oppose it.
The plan called for limits on both the mortgage interest and capital gains deductions, as well as the repeal of deductions for state and local property taxes.
This spring VAR will be introducing its legislator report card — a groundbreaking project to help Realtors® and others understand how Virginia's state senators and delegates' are voting on important Realtor issues.
The report card will be all about transparency.
Each session, it will track the high-profile, Realtor-impacting bills being considered by the General Assembly, and will show how members of the Assembly voted on those bills.
Pieces of Home — the 2013 Virginia Housing Market Report — is now available. This is one of the most important publications VAR produces — it’s a clear, succinct summary of the year in Virginia housing, featuring data from across the state and insightful commentary from housing and economics experts.
Our Get Active legislative conference may have been cut short by the weather, but the General Assembly session marches on — and with it, VAR’s legislative agenda. Check out the latest Capitol Connections video for the details on the status of our bills (along with some photos from Get Active).
Due to the incoming weather, Governor McAuliffe has declared a state of emergency in Virginia.
What this means for the Get Active Legislative Advocacy Conference:
- REALTOR® Day on the Hill -- legislator visits -- are still going on as scheduled, starting at 9:30 AM. (The snow will not begin until the afternoon.)
- However, all sessions and functions after noon Wednesday through Thursday have been cancelled.
