More than 900 business professionals engaged in all facets of residential construction trekked to Capitol Hill on June 12, 2024, to call on Congress to ease the chronic headwinds that are fanning the nation’s housing affordability crisis and impeding builders from boosting housing production.

In more than 250 individual meetings with their representatives and senators, housing advocates urged lawmakers to act on three key issues outlined in NAHB’s housing plan—adopt reasonable and cost-effective building codes, ease severe shortages of distribution transformers, and promote careers in the skilled trades—to help builders make homeownership and renting more affordable.

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and Rep. Chuck Edwards (R-N.C.) spoke to NAHB members before they conducted their Hill visits.
