CONGRESSIONAL REALTY CAUCUS TAKES OFF.

Demonstrating the ever-increasing importance of real estate industry issues in the minds of Congressional representatives, membership in the fledgling Congressional Real Estate Caucus has grown to 75 members in less than a year. The National Apartment Association's (NAA's) successful march on Capitol Hill during the NAA Capital Conference in March helped build the caucus membership, with 18 Members of Congress expressing an interest in the caucus during their visits with NAA representatives.

Formed in May 1998 by Reps. Richard Neal (D-MA) and Phil English (R-PA), the Caucus is supported by the National Real Estate Organizations (NREO), which include NAA/National Multi Housing Council (NMHC). It is a bipartisan group of Members of Congress interested in protecting and promoting real estate. The group serves as a forum for members and guests in the real estate field to ensure federal policies facilitate real estate's continued contributions to the national, state, and local economies. NAA/NMHC will continue to work with the Caucus to help solicit new members and to identify legislative issues where the Caucus can become active.
