Statehouse Efforts

The Government Affairs office follows numerous issues that affect new home construction in South Carolina. Our intent is to keep our members aware of the actions of the General Assembly in an effort to ensure that our industry – and our members – has a level and fair playing field. We must pay close attention to fee increases, growth controls, impact fees, frivolous and abusive lawsuits, and unwarranted environmental regulations.

Government Affairs Newsletter

To keep HBASC members fully informed of the latest legislative action affecting homebuilding in South Carolina, your Governmental Affairs office prepares the HBASC Legislative Update, a weekly e-newsletter delivered during the legislative session. This newsletter includes headlines from the Statehouse, as well as updates on important pieces of legislation and upcoming events.
