#1 New SAHBA Home Show Site Makes it Simple for Exhibitors and Consumers
The brand new site SAHBAHomeShow.com makes it simple for exhibitors to get involved and simple for consumers to make the most out of their time at the Show.

The 2018 Spring Show - April 6-8 is gearing up to be one of the most exciting ever. We have a full weekend that includes celebrity chefs, great speakers, and the latest and greatest from 300+ exhibitors. Visit the site for more details and a $2 off coupon. See you at the Show!
#2 Are Good Roads Worth Paying More in Taxes?
This morning the Pima County Board of Supervisors accepted a recommendation from a citizens stakeholder committee related to an increase in sales tax dedicated for road repair. SAHBA has long advocated for fixing the roads. We appreciate the work of the committee and encourage the Board to address this important issue but we do have some concerns about increased taxation, management of the funds and ongoing maintenance. See the letter submitted by SAHBA .   
#3 Working on a Secure Water Future
As development activity in Arizona increases, the conversation about our water resources is becoming extremely relevant. SAHBA has been actively engaged in the discussions, including at the legislature, about ensuring enough water to accommodate growth in the Tucson and Southern Arizona region. Our water future is directly linked to our economic and social wellbeing. Kudos to U of A’s Water Resource Research Center for a great forum last week on “The Business of Water”.
