Chapter Spotlight: Arizona adds another co-sponsor to the Respect State Housing Laws Act  

Another Congressman has agreed to co-sponsor H.R. 802/S.3755,  the Respect State Laws Housing Act. Arizona Rep. Elijah Crane (R-AZ 2nd District) has been added as a co-sponsor, in addition to Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ 8th District) and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ 5th District).  


The IREM Arizona delegation was able to secure sponsorship from Reps. Biggs and Lesko’s office back in February during our Advocacy Impact Day event in D.C., and now they have added a third Arizona Congressman to support the bill.  


We commend our IREM Arizona members for their hard work advocating for this legislation!     

New Call to Action demonstration video  


The Government Affairs Department recently created a Call to Action demonstration video explaining how members can use VoterVoice, an online grassroots advocacy platform to contact their federal, state, and local officials. With the push of a button, members are able to contact their officials urging them to either support or oppose a legislative or regulatory issue.  


We encourage all chapters to share the video with their members
