Rally Day 2017 Brings Industry Voice to Texas Legislators

Bradley PepperAdvocacy, Featured, Member News

Rally Day 2017 was a huge success on Wednesday, February 22! Approximately 170 GHBA members registered for Rally Day. The GHBA had 20 teams of members that visited all 46 of our delegation legislators and we were well represented by leadership too! Six GHBA past presidents participated in Rally Day, and all but one GHBA council/division president joined us at the Capitol. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Once again the GHBA took home TAB’s award for the most local HBA participation — the tradition lives on!!

At Rally Day, GHBA members heard remarks from State Comptroller Glenn Hegar and TAB leadership. GHBA members also divided into teams to visit legislator offices in the afternoon and shared industry support of municipal utility districts and of HB 1449, legislation that would curb cities’ authority to levy linkage fees on new residential construction.


While there is more to come in the legislative session, there is no doubt that our Rally Day made an impact on our delegation. Thank you again to members who participated and to our sponsors — BMC, Bonded Builders Warranty Group, Builders Post-Tension, DataSmart/Duncan Security, Ferguson Bath Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, Goodman Manufacturing Company, Holcomb Properties, StrucSure Home Warranty, and Tilson Home Corporation. Without your support Rally Day would not have been possible!
