The Government Affairs Committee is charged with the responsibility of studying proposed and existing legislation effecting real estate. Its areas of concern cover local, state and national legislation and annual fund raising for the Realtors Political Affairs Committee (RPAC). It also makes suggestions to legislators and communicates the Association’s position on legislative matters. It is charged with interviewing candidates in the event the Association wishes to endorse candidates in political races and recommends those legislators who are most favorable to the real estate industry and private property rights. The Committee is responsible for educating the membership on the importance of involvement in the Legislative process, and the solicitation of funds to support the Realtors Political Action Committee in order for RPAC to support Legislators at the state and national level favorable to the real estate profession. It’s estimated they meet 6-8 times a year."
