President Trump today announced a deal with congressional leaders to reopen the federal government for three weeks while talks continue on his demand for a border wall.
NAHB Chairman Randy Noel issued the following statement regarding this important development:
“NAHB commends President Trump and congressional leaders for working together to reopen the government for three weeks while they tackle the issue of border security. At a time when the nation is facing a growing housing affordability crisis, the shutdown has exacerbated the situation by disrupting funding for important HUD housing programs. It is vitally important that Congress and the White House come to an agreement on securing our southern border to ensure the federal government remains open indefinitely.”
