Formerly the Legislative Committee, the Public Policy Oversight Committee is charged with identifying and monitoring proposed legislation and regulatory changes, to evaluate the impact on the real estate industry, and formulate the association’s legislative agenda with input from the leadership, membership, and committee members.  

The Public Policy Oversight Committee (PPOC) consists of five appointed members and the chairs and vice-chairs of each of the Public Policy Issues Committees. The purpose of the PPOC is to review and take action on the issues committees’ recommendations on policy positions; the PPOC will also host a semi-annual forum at TAR Winter Meetings and Annual Conference in order to educate REALTOR® members on current policy topics of relevance to the real estate industry.
