Advocacy Day '18 Draws 50 to Meet with State Legislators Closing Out Session

 Rep. Brooks addresses audience.

Last Thursday, 50 members and local HBA staff traveled to Madison to advocate for Wisconsin housing during our 2018 Advocacy Day at the Capitol.  This year, our annual lobby day coincided with the last day on the floor for the State Assembly.

The day started with a housing and property rights update from State Representative Rob Brooks and State Senator Tom Tiffany.  During the presentation, a member presented feedback to Senator Tiffany on the fact that a provision of the Homeowner’s Bill of Rights that established a set process to receive a variance from a local unit of government was used in Slinger and really streamlined the process.
