Legislative Alert: REALTOR® & Government Day 2019

Wisconsin REALTORS® lobbied for real estate change

 June 10, 2019

On April 24, over 300 REALTORS® from across Wisconsin converged on the state Capitol in Madison for REALTOR® & Government Day to lobby their state lawmakers on the following proposed legislation that could have a direct impact on their clients, their businesses and their communities:

  • A proposed 2 percent statewide property tax increase that would make it more expensive to own a home or operate a business in Wisconsin.
  • A new savings account that would make it easier for first-time homebuyers to own a home.
  • An effort to modernize the digital interface that REALTORS® have with the Department of Safety and Professional Services for license renewal, reporting of continuing education and other important licensing matters.
  • A proposal that would protect the ability of Wisconsin homeowners to have home surveillance systems without disclosing this information to the public or prospective buyers.

Throughout the 2019-20 legislative session, the WRA will keep you informed on the progress of these four pieces of legislation. Thank you to all the REALTORS® who attended this year’s REALTOR® & Government Day event. Mark your calendar for next year’s REALTOR® & Government Day on February 12, 2020.
