The Senate is back in session this week and working to craft their version of a Phase 4 COVID relief bill. The House has already passed their version several weeks ago and included NLBMDA-backed priorities such as expansion of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit. NLBMDA is working to lobby the Senate on these priorities and urge members to use ourgrassroots action center to weigh in with their elected officials on LBM industry priorities.
NLBMDA recently sent aletter to the Senate detailing these, which include:
Scale-back expanded unemployment benefits and incentivize return to work;
A strong employer liability protection system;
Expansion of SBA loan funding, including the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP);
Expansion of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC);
Increased access to PPE and testing;
NLBMDA has created a grassroots engagement for our members to take action with their elected officials and urge them to support the LBM industry in all future relief legislation.
