The Illinois House of Representatives will be in session on January 6, 7, & 8. These are the last three days of the old Illinois General Assembly; the new G.A. will be installed and convened on January 9, 2013.

In the three days left of the old session, a very important bill will be called that requires the support of all home builders, vendors, sub-contractors, and their employees.

If there has ever been a more important time to be a part of a national association representing the home construction industry, I don't remember when. Builders, associates, and executive officers came to Washington, D.C. this week for the annual National Association of Home Builders Legislative Conference (NAHB Leg Con).

There were some significant activities last week on HBAI legislative issues.
