Over 600 members lobbied their legislators on four critically important issues at the virtual 2021 REALTOR® & Government Day last month. These four issues included:

  1. Workforce housing: Support for financial incentives to increase the supply of workforce housing in Wisconsin. 
  2. Broadband expansion: Support for the expansion of broadband services throughout Wisconsin. 
  3. Property taxes: Oppose the proposed property tax increase in the 2021-23 state budget allowing local levy limits to be increased by a minimum of 2% annually. 
  4. COVID-19 losses for landlords: Support for making landlords whole for losses due to government-imposed responsibilities, including tenant municipal utility bills and the COVID-19 eviction moratorium.

Status

All four issues are being debated as part of the state budget process in the Wisconsin Legislature. Watch for more information about these issues and more in future editions of Wisconsin Real Estate Magazine.
