Advocacy & Action Center
TAB (Texas Association of Builders) Advocacy Center enables TAB’s legislative team to implement a coordinated communications and grassroots advocacy campaign through email, e-newsletters and alert messages and is where members can quickly and easily participate in the legislative process.
HOMEPAC, TAB's political action committee, is an essential part of TAB's advocacy program. HOMEPAC maximizes political contributions by association members by supporting pro-housing candidates and incumbents for both statewide office and the Texas Legislature. It is through voluntary contributions that HOMEPAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the residential construction and development industry in Texas.
Industry Topics & Issues
One of the primary principles upon which Texas was built is the right an individual has in his or her property. Since its inception, our association has made defending those rights from unreasonable, or sometimes even illegal, regulations a core tenet.
It is imperative that any changes to the current tax system do not place an unfair burden on the home building industry, due to the fact that the cost and availability of housing is significantly impacted by regulatory barriers and taxes.
Burdensome land-use authority at the county level such as zoning and various permitting requirements can be increasingly detrimental to the home building industry.
A deteriorating Texas road system not only harms Texas travelers and the economy as a whole, but it also has a direct effect on the future of the housing development and construction industry.
Over the next five years, 20 percent of skilled workers in the construction industry will retire. It is critical to both the Texas economy and business community that students have the opportunity to learn carpentry, welding, electrical, plumbing, and other skills that can place them into the workforce in well-paying jobs as high school graduates.
