Supreme Court Nominee Gorsuch
Important Message from NAHB Chairman Granger MacDonald
Now is the time for the Senate to move forward on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Gorsuch is a strong choice for the Supreme Court and his nomination deserves a vote.
The Supreme Court is expected to hear several cases that directly impact the home building industry. Important issues like land use, environmental regulations and worker misclassification could all face judicial review. And one vote could sway the court.
That’s why it’s important for the Supreme Court’s vacant seat to be filled quickly by Judge Gorsuch, the right jurist for the job.
Please call your Senator and ask them to move forward the nomination of Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
Call 866-924-6242 to be connected to your Senator.
