Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act Of 2015 February 2, 2016
Gwen Moore, D-WI
"H.R. 3700 is supported by the National Association of Realtors, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, among the over two dozen groups supporting it."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 February 2, 2016
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"So on buildings, which use about 40 percent of our energy in this country, the proposals in our legislation would improve energy savings by strengthening outdated model building codes to make new homes and commercial buildings more energy efficient. Again, I point out that it does that without any mandates. It is a carefully crafted agreement that has been negotiated with everyone, from the home builders to the realtors to a number of our friends in labor. So I think this is a compromise, and the language in the bill is a compromise for which there is broad support."
In Recognition Of The Greater Wilkes-Barre Association Of Realtors 100Th Anniversary October 21, 2015
Matt Cartwright, D-PA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the Greater Wilkes-Barre Association of Realtors as they celebrate 100 years of service to the community. For the past century, the Association’s members have helped families in their pursuit of the American dream of home ownership."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3192, Homebuyers Assistance Act October 7, 2015
Andy Barr, R-KY
"Mr. Speaker, this makes the home buying process more difficult for consumers. But at the end of the day, even if we are going to go forward with this new, complicated regulation, 1,800 pages or so, at least—at least—give the participants—the closing attorneys, the title insurance agents, the Realtors, the advocates for the home buyers, and the advocates for the consumers—let them have a brief period of time where they can get up to speed with the complexity of this rule so that innocent mistakes are not punished and that home buyers are not punished."
Homebuyers Assistance Act October 7, 2015
Frank Guinta, R-NH
"I met with New Hampshire bankers, credit unions, and Realtors in September. They shared their concerns about what could happen if, misinterpreting the new rules, they made an unfortunate or unintentional error."
