We have reached the part of legislative session where we count the hours remaining. With a constitutionally-mandated adjournment of Monday, May 21 the legislature is scheduled to meet late into the nights over the next week in order to finish their work.
BATC-Housing First Minnesota has worked throughout the session to defend the industry against harmful proposed legislation and to promote two bills that would positively impact housing.
HF3044, a bill that would require legislative oversight for any state rulemaking that would impact homeowners by $1,000 or more.
Additionally, an allocation towards Project Build Minnesota. Project Build Minnesota is leading the charge to help address the construction workforce shortage.
Look for updates regarding the status of these initiatives in the coming days. Continue to follow our Twitter and Facebook for up-to-the minute housing advocacy news.
