PWAR Small Group Legislative Tours with Legislators to Promote and Protect the Interests of Realtors
Provided by Prince William Association of Realtors
For the first time in two years, members of the 2022 PWAR Small Legislative Group participated in the 2022 REALTOR Day on the Hill program. The program is designed to bring real estate agents to Richmond for meetings with their elected officials and to lobby for legislative initiatives.
The group was recognized by Delegate Luke Torian (D-52nd) in an address to the entire House of Delegates. Meetings with lawmakers were highlighted by the overwhelming bipartisan vote in favor of the REALTORS® top legislative priority, Bill 768. The bill, introduced by Delegate H. Keith Hodges (R-98) would allow Virginia REALTORS to offer a membership-based group health insurance policy. The bill passed the House of Delegates 95-4
The next steps in the legislation will take place after the crossover period when the Senate considers HB 768 and the House considers SB 355 the Senate version of the legislation. The Senate passed SB 355 sponsored by Sen. George Barker (D-39th) by a vote of 39-0 on Jan. 28.
