Regular Legislative Session is due to end this week on Thursday, June 8th. No tax increase bills have passed so far. In anticipation of this, Governor Edwards recently called a Special Legislative Session to start immediately after the Regular Legislative Session ends. If the House of Representatives version of the budget is not compromised in the Regular Legislative Session, the governor will precede with the Special Legislative Session.
Minimum wage increase and equal pay bills have also not gained any traction at the Legislature this session. Minimum wage legislation failed in Senate Finance Committee and the equal pay bill is parked on the Senate floor. The equal pay legislation would have expanded the law to private employers and men employees. The minimum wage bill would have raised wages to $8.00 per hour in 2018 and to $8.25 starting in 2019.

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.
