What does the Texas Association of REALTORS® do on your behalf at the Texas Capitol?

Today, the association is working to preserve home equity lending protections that insulated Texas from much of the national foreclosure crisis. HJR 131, a bill filed in the Texas House of Representatives, would undermine those safeguards. TAR Political Affairs Committee Vice Chairman John Nichols will testify today against the bill during a public hearing before the House Investments and Financial Services Committee.  

This bill is one of 2,108 that TAR is currently tracking—but Texas REALTORS® know it takes more than just following bills to protect the real estate industry.

On April 14, more than 2,000 Texas REALTORS® will gather at the Capitol to meet with legislators to discuss issues affecting your industry during the 2015 Texas REALTOR® Hill Visits
