Realtors® Focus on Inventory and Fair Housing Solutions at Legislative Meetings

Closing out the second day of the 2022 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings, The Advocacy Scoop(link is external) provided National Association of Realtors® members with an inside take on the state of real estate in Congress.

NAR President Leslie Rouda Smith opened the session by laying out three priorities Realtors® are taking to lawmakers on Capitol Hill this week: addressing inventory, supply, and affordability; ensuring fair housing for all; and demonstrating how NAR research products can inform policymaking.

"We often say our advocacy operation is second to none – and we say that because it's true," Rouda Smith said. "We don't represent an industry. We represent a profession made up of 1.5 million individuals working every day in their communities to change lives."
