June 8th marked the end of the 2017 Regular Legislative Session. Louisiana Home Builders Association (LHBA) had another successful legislative session outcome. The stakes were the highest in recent political history with business tax proposals in the billions. Taxes on business gross receipts, as well as a sales tax on remodeling and installation services fell flat.
A constitutional amendment supported by LHBA made its way through the state Legislature. Construction while in progress will not pay ad valorem taxes if passed by voters. Currently, the Louisiana Constitution is silent on tax assessments concerning uncompleted construction projects. This amendment, now Act 428 will be on the fall ballot this election season.

BUILD-PAC'S NEW "FAIR SHARE" PROGRAM
BUILD-PAC's new Fair Share campaign is the easiest way to get involved in the political process. We are asking every member to do their Fair Share for the housing industry by contributing just $25 to BUILD-PAC during the 2015-2016 election cycle.
What would happen if every NAHB member did their Fair Share?
If every member does their Fair Share and invests a minimum of $25, then BUILD-PAC will be a $3.5 Million PAC. This would allow BUILD-PAC and housing to have an even greater impact in the 2016 elections.
What is my Fair Share going toward?
Your contribution helps elect pro-housing, pro-business candidates who will support our issues and fight for housing in Congress.
How can I help with the Fair Share campaign?
Please help your state meet its goal. During your state and local meetings back home, ask your peers to do their Fair Share for housing by contributing just $25 to BUILD-PAC in this election cycle. If every member does their Fair Share, then BUILD-PAC's voice will be LOUDER and STRONGER than ever before.
Questions? For more information contact BUILD-PAC staff.

In mid June, LHBA Leadership met with 6 of the Louisiana delegation at the 2017 NAHB Legislative Conference on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.
House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise
LHBA leadership was scheduled to meet with Representative Steve Scalise, House Majority Whip on the day of the horrific shooting (June 14th). We are happy to hear that
Representative Scalise is making good progress and has been upgraded to "fair condition." We pray for continued healing for Scalise and all involved.
