Legislative Minimize

 Homeownership is an important part of the American way of life, and there may never be a better time to buy than today! 

NAHB strives to protect the American Dream of housing opportunities for all, while working to achieve professional success for its members who build communities, create jobs and strengthen our economy.  "Building Homes, Enriching Communities, Changing Lives."

HOW TO COMPLY AND MITIGATE THE EFFECTS OF THE OVERTIME RULE:  Despite strong opposition by NAHB and other leaders in the nation's small business community, the Department of Labor (DOL) last month issued its final overtime rule, which will more than double the current overtime salary limit of $23,660 to $47,476.  Set to take effect on Dec 1, the rule will have significant ramifications for many employers, including home building firms and non-profit organizations.  NAHB continues to lead the effort to urge Congress to quickly pass the Protecting Workplace Advancement and Opportunity Act.  The legislation would force the DOL to withdraw this rule until it has considered the effects it would have on small businesses, consumers, workers and the economy.  For more information, contact NAHB's Suzanne Beall at 800-368-5242 X 8407.  PLEASE NOTE:  FEDERAL JUDGE BLOCKS OVERTIME RULE!  A federal judge on November 22, granted a preliminary injunction to delay implementation of the Department of Labor's new overtime rule.  While the injunction is only temporary, the ruling sent a strong signal that Judge Amos Mazzant  would likely side with NAHB.  Working with House and Senate lawmakers and members of business coalition, Partnership to Protect Workplace Opportunity, NAHB has been leading the effort to mitigate the effects of the overtime rule.

New ProtectHomewonership.com Website - Mortgage Interest Deduction Threatened. The National Association of Home Builders has launched a new website, www.ProtectHomeownership.com, to bring attention to the threat to homeownership and action to protect it.  The site addresses the Mortage Interest Deduction threat along with the tax, legislative and regulatory policies that would make mortgages and small business loans unaffordable and difficult to obtain.

$5,950 - NAHB exists to provide value to members.  The Association's advocacy efforts throughout 2016, along with other member benefits, will provide members with a value of $5,950 per housing start in 2017.  Visit valueofnahb.org for more information.

As of January 14, 2015, employers that fall under the jurisdiction of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) are required to report all work-related fatalities within eight hours, and all work-related in-patient hospitalizations, amputations and losses of an eye within 24 hours of finding about the incident.  Businesses in a state with a state-run OSHA program should contact their state plan for the implementation date, though they are encouraged to also comply by January 1, 2015.  Employers have three options for reporting to OSHA.  They can call the nearest area office during normal business hours, call the 24-hour OSHA hotline at 1-800-321-OSHA (1-800-321-6742) or they can report online at osha.gov/report_online/.  For more information and resources on the new requirements visit osha.gov/recordkeeping.
