NAHB continues to push green agenda

A National Association of Home Builders representative told me today that the association's new National Green Building Standard is very close to achieving ANSI approval, and should be available soon.

That will give the association something to talk about at its National Green Building Conference, celebrating its 10th anniversary in New Orleans on May 11 to 13.

In related news, speaking before Congress today for the NAHB, energy consultant Michael Hodgson urged the passage of a temporary home buyer tax credit, a net operating loss deduction carryback expansion for hard-hit businesses, and expansion of the mortgage revenue bond program.
