This morning, Congressman Robert Hurt (R, District 5) hosted a tele-town hall for REALTOR® members within his congressional district. This is the first time a web event with a congressman has been offered to VAR members, and presented a great opportunity for members to directly interact with their legislator. Some of the issues addressed by Congressman Hurt were:

  • His roles on the Financial Services Committee, the Subcommittee on Insurance, Housing, and Community Opportunity, and the Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government-Sponsored Enterprises
  • His role on extending the National Flood Insurance Program and the future of that critical program
  • Questions submitted by REALTORS® across the state, including those about tollbooths on Federal highways, the effect of the debt ceiling on sequestration, and more
