On behalf of the National Association of Realtors, I want to offer my heartfelt appreciation for responding to our Call For Action on the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. Because of concerned members like you, who recognized the need for quick action, Congress has passed this important bill, and President Bush already has signed it into law.
We realize this bill is not perfect. However, we believe the additions made by the Senate, raising the FDIC insurance limit and several other measures that will benefit and protect taxpayers, make it a more favorable solution than the previous proposal.
NAR will continue to work with Congress and the Administration to make sure the measures included in this bill are implemented quickly. We will provide you with additional information on how you can help in the days and weeks ahead.
Thank you, again, for your participation and support of our advocacy efforts. You truly are the "Voice for Real Estate."
