Statement from NAHB Chairman Randy Noel on House Passage of Farm Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Randy Noel, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a custom home builder from LaPlace, La., today issued the following statement on House passage of the farm bill:

“NAHB commends the House for passing the farm bill. The legislation includes provisions of importance to the housing community. It implements critical forest management reforms that will help improve the health of our forest system and reduce our reliance on foreign sources of timber. This is especially important given that soaring lumber prices—exacerbated by 20 percent tariffs on imports of Canadian softwood lumber—are harming housing affordability.

“The bill would also repeal the Obama administration’s waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, allowing the EPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to craft a new rule that protects the environment without impeding economic growth.”
