Illinois REALTORS® will lobby members of Congress next week to protect private property rights during the NAR REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, May 9-14.

Meetings have already been scheduled with most of Illinois’ 20 elected officials (two U.S. senators and 18 U.S. representatives) or their staff members.

Among the issues REALTORS® hope to discuss are:

  • Support for expanding flood insurance options for homeowners;
  • Support for making mortgage debt forgiveness on taxable income permanent;
  • Support for affordable credit for first-time and millennial home buyers; and
  • Support for 1031 like-kind exchanges.
