NCHBA Legislative Update
After a slow start, the flow of legislation is starting to intensify.  Big ticket items are starting to move from chamber to chamber.  Front and center this week was a corporate incentives package that divided both the Republican and Democratic caucuses and a formulation change of the state's gas tax.  These types of bills have the potential to create hard feelings amongst legislators, both along ideological and geographical lines.  It appears that both House and Senate leaders want to clear some of these larger bills up before they get too far into the session.  These types of issues can absorb huge amounts of political capital and have the ability to create headaches for legislative leaders. 

On Thursday, Majority Leader Mike Hager introduced House Bill 168 "Exempt Builders' Inventory."  Under this legislation, real property held for sale by a builder is designated as a special class of property.  Any improvements made to the property, by the builder, are excluded from taxation, as long as the property is for sale.  This pro-economic development legislation will benefit builders and local governments.  By exempting the real property improvements from further taxation, this act will incentivize future land development and economic growth.  NCHBA would like to thank Representative Hager, along with Representative(s) Collins, Millis, Brody, Steinburg, Goodman and R. Moore for sponsoring this pro-growth legislation.

The pace of this session has been disrupted by much of the winter weather over the last few weeks.  However, that pace is expected to increase in the coming weeks.  It is anticipated that over the next few weeks hundreds of bills will be introduced in both the House and Senate.  As always, NCHBA staff will remain vigilant and continue to defend the most important industry to our economy, housing.

H 168 Exempt Builders' Inventory - Filed in House
H 117 NC Competes Act - Passed House, moved to Senate
S 20 IRC Update/Motor Fuels Tax Changes  - Engrossed and moved to Senate
