The SCAOR Card – Issue #016 – Public Policy

Hello from the SCAOR Public Policy Committee!!  There are a few updates for the good of the membership that I would like to tell you about.  First, we are considering creating a new local RPAC committee to spearhead out RPAC Fundraising.  Alongside the YPN we are planning an event in the fall.  We have achieved 74% our NAR RPAC investment goal and the fall event will surely get us to our target. 

Second, we are working with the DAR PPC and lobbyist to support legislation for a state transfer tax exemption for first time home buyers and we are supporting a bill that if passed will repeal the 1% transfer tax increase last year.  Please take a look at the DAR Government Affairs legislative updates at

Nationally there are 15 major federal issues being followed and you can find information on the issues, NAR’s position, and how they affect REALTORS®, home buyers, and private property owners via the Federal Issues Tracker

Lastly there is a new Realtor Party Mobile Alert (RPMA) system REALTOR® Party Mobile Alerts that has replaced the Realtor Party Action Center.  Once signed up you will receive text alerts for active Calls for Action (CFAs).  State wide we have a participation goal of 23% which adds up to a minimum of 901 members that we need to reach our goal.  Please take a few moments to complete the form and start getting the texts!
