Dear SAR REALTOR®and Affiliate Members,
Please do not miss your opportunity to attend C.A.R. Legislative Day! Registration is open NOW but closes soon – please be sure to register by Monday, April 18th, 2022 at 4:30pm. Legislative Day is taking place at the Sacramento Convention Center on Wednesday, April 27th from 9am-11am. You will not be able to register on-site. Register Today!
When you register, please be sure to share to your social networks that you will be attending! Here is a graphic to download that you can post to let your family, friends, clients, and colleagues know that you are engaged in your profession at such a meaningful level.
By attending, you can learn all about our state association’s legislative efforts — both offensive and defensive. There are some outrageous legislative proposals that will knock your socks off. For example, did you know there is a current bill that would levy a 25% state tax on homeowners when they sell within 3 years after purchase? Did you know that there is a current bill that would require rental property owners to enroll their properties in a searchable public statewide database that would publish the property owner’s personal contact information? Did you know that there have been several attempts to get rid of the mortgage interest deduction?
Knowledge is power! Our local, state, and national associations advocate on our behalf every day. In any given state of California legislative session there are literally hundreds of bills that have an effect in one way or another on housing, land use, private property rights, real property transfer, property taxation, and more. The first exposure I had to what exactly our state association does to advocate on our behalf came when I attended C.A.R.’s Legislative Day many years ago. It has become my absolute favorite annual event, and I am so thankful that after a couple years hiatus we are able to gather again.
I hope to see you there! And if you want to carpool, let me know. I have one seat left on the “Stumpf Bus”. =)
