Housing Industry Advocates for Affordability


Housing Day at the Capitol attendees met with nearly 80 percent of the state’s 201 legislators, outlining the importance of the pro-housing Minnesota Homeownership Initiative legislation, prepared by the event’s sponsors. Details on the 2018 Minnesota Homeownership Initiative can be found on page 9.

“Housing Day at the Capitol provides insight into the legislative issues that the housing industry faces on a daily basis,” said Marla Abstetar, sales executive at Kohler Co. “Having the opportunity to personally sit down with your state senator and representative and have a conversation about the importance of these issues gives our representatives a personal connection that they consider when voting.”

In addition to the meetings with legislators, the event included an early evening reception with legislators and legislative staff with a presentation from Charlie Cook, a nationally-recognized political commentator and publisher of the Cook Political Report.
