Government & Local Affairs

The HBAA’s Governmental and Regulatory Affairs program is designed to give Alabama’s home building industry a strong voice on the local, state, and national stages. The HBAA accomplishes this through supporting legislation and regulatory rules that strengthen the industry and have a positive impact on the state’s economy.

In addition to lobbying for the home building industry, the Governmental Affairs program provides other benefits exclusively to HBAA members:

  • Monitor state agencies for actions that may impact home building
  • Testify before public hearings on issues affecting the home building industry
  • Recommend individuals for appointments to various state agencies that deal with home building interests
  • Provide governmental affairs support to local associations dealing with County & Municipal growth & tax related issues
  • Draft model legislation and regulatory rules
  • Provide assistance on building code issues to local and state agencies and associations
