NAHB backs legislation to ease supply chain disruptions

The National Association of Home Builders announced on its NAHBNow blog that it has sent a letter to House lawmakers supporting legislation that would address “longstanding, systemic supply chain and port disruption issues for lumber and other building materials that have been raising construction costs and impacting housing affordability.”

H.R. 4996, the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2021, NAHB says, is designed to move ships into and out of ports faster and address barriers to trade and challenges associated with moving goods to their final destination.

“These badly needed improvements will go a long way to ensuring needed building materials reach job sites across the country in a timely manner and as cost-effectively as possible,” the NAHB letter to lawmakers stated. “Your efforts will help ensure home builders have the tools and materials they need to make the American dream of homeownership a reality for all Americans.”
