ADVOCACY

Home Builders Association of Tennessee Advocacy

Your Voice On The Hill

Our primary mission is giving a single voice to our membership at the state legislature and state regulatory agencies. We advocate passionately and endlessly to ensure that your ability to operate your business, employ people, and make a profit isn’t hindered by burdensome regulations. Specifically, the HBAT leadership works to defeat legislation that is hostile to our industry. But we also advocate for legislation that helps our industry thrive and become a much stronger contributor to Tennessee’s economy.

Our political action committee, HIPAC, plays a big role in our advocacy efforts at the Tennessee General Assembly. Your voluntary contributions assist the HBAT team in making sure we have a friendly and positive political environment in the state capital.
