GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS NEWS –
MAR recently testified in opposition to the Governor’s proposal to eliminate the capital gains exclusion, the Title 5 tax credit, and the lead paint tax credit. The hearing was held last Friday during the tail end of the long snowstorm. MAR President-Elect Peter Ruffini, MAR CEO Rob Authier, GBREB CEO Greg Vasil and MAR Legal Counsel, Mike McDonough testified on the issues and fielded a good number of questions from the Ways & Means Committee. From Mike McDonough — “Our testimony was well received and legislators seemed very interested and quite supportive of our position. As you know, timing is everything and our testimony was immediately followed by the Governor and his cabinet who testified for two hours with lots of charts and graphs”. As a next step in our advocacy efforts, please note that we will be sending a targeted Call-for-Action to REALTORS who live in the district of State Representatives who are members of the House Ways & Means Committee. The Call-for-Action will be sent mid-next week as the House starts to draft their own proposed budget. With this Call-for-Action, we will send another clear and strong message that REALTORS care about these issues.
