Call to Action from Homebuilders Association of Fayetteville

The North Carolina General Assembly has passed bipartisan legislation to stop the NC Building Code Council from adopting outrageous energy code requirements that would add approximately $20,400 to the cost of the average new home in North Carolina.

Moreover, we estimate that the cost of these code requirements would price more than 102,500 North Carolina families out of a new home.

We need YOU to send an email to Governor Roy Cooper urging him to protect housing affordability by signing House Bill 488, “Code Council Reorg. and Var. Code Amend.” or otherwise allow it to become law.

Copy and paste the following with your name and address in the signature line and email it to: [email protected]

Governor Cooper,

I urge you to sign House Bill 488, “Code Council Reorg. and Var. Code Amend.” or otherwise let it become law. This important legislation helps protect housing affordability in North Carolina by preventing an additional $20,400 in construction costs. Enactment of this legislation would make sure that more than 102,500 North Carolina families are not priced out of purchasing a new home.

Please let this legislation become law.

Sincerely, (your name & address)
