#3 Legislative Update: Advocating for Affordable Housing
We are in the midst of another hectic Arizona legislative session! There have been nearly 1,600 bills introduced. SAHBA, with the help of our Capitol lobbyists, Copper State Consulting , have been tracking dozens of them that effect our member interests. A number of bills deal with water, taxation and endangered species.
 
In particular, SAHBA has been working with the Home Builders Association of Central Arizona on a bill they helped get introduced related to affordable housing. The bill would introduce a tool for cities and towns to implement an “affordable housing overlay zone” that would remove regulatory obstacles that interfere with the private sectors ability to make housing affordable. The bill passed the House Commerce Committee last week but is being opposed by the League of Cities and Towns (including active opposition from the Town of Marana) who want to keep regulations in place. Stay tuned for more info.

Census 2020 - Be Counted!

Counting everyone in your household can shape Arizona’s future.

What does the Arizona 2020 Census mean for the state?   The census matters to Arizona and has an impact on our daily lives - the roads we drive on, access to health care, school lunch programs, even our political representation.  The census is our once in a decade opportunity to shape the next ten years in Arizona and plays an important role in determining the amount of federal funding Arizona receives.  The $675 billion available to states every year is based on population.

The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. This helps us build thriving communities and a strong Arizona workforce.

By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.  You will have three options for responding: Online, By Phone, By Mail and now you can even respond on your Mobile device.  It’s easy and a complete count ensures that we can preserve the outstanding quality of life we enjoy in Arizona.
