    2010 President                                                   A lot is at stake in the November elections. It is important that
    Mark Aldriedge                                          lawmakers and candidates remember the important role housing plays in
  2317 LaCantera Ct         the economy, and that regulatory conditions that hamper home building and efforts to eliminate or
   Abilene TX 79606         weaken important housing tax incentives will have a devastating effect on the nation’s economic recov-
    325-672-1236            ery and future prosperity.

                            Please take this time to set-up a meeting with your Members of Congress and let them know that the
                            housing industry still needs their help getting back on its feet.
                                      When you see/meet a lawmaker or candidate, here are a few questions you could ask:
                             Given the severe credit problems currently impacting all US small businesses, a crisis that is espe-
                            cially acute for the nation’s home builders who are made up of mostly small businesses, what will you
                            do to help the housing industry lead the nation out of our current economic slump?
                             Specifically, will you support legislation backed by NAHB (H.R. 5409) designed to expand the flow
                            of credit for the home building industry and the millions of people it employs each year by establishing
                            a loan guarantee program for lenders who provide construction loans to builders with viable projects?
                                      See you soon as we have a great September lined up for you!

                                                                                    LUNCHEON NOTCE
