Center for Responsive Politics Home Builder Campaign Contributions
National Assn of Home Builders
The National Association of Home Builders is a federation that represents state and local home building groups across the country. One of the groups leading goals is to press members of Congress and the White House to allocate funds to stimulate the nations housing market, whether thats through tax cuts or increased appropriations for the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Increasingly, however, the group has been actively lobbying on so-called smart growth issues. Home builders want Congress to pass environmental regulations they believe are favorable to the industry, including a rollback of some portions of the Clean Air Act and other notable regulations.
