Who runs the PAC?
The Board of Trustees makes decisions based on feedback from their local colleagues. Each local HBA appoints a board member, who acts as a liaison between the local HBA’s advisory committee and the SC Builders PAC Board of Trustees. In addition to appointed representatives from each local HBA, three officers elected by the trustees and the state legislative chairman from the Home Builders’ Association of South Carolina make up the SC Builders PAC.
Where does funding come from and how is it spent?
Local HBAs raise funds through contributions from individual members and from corporations. Most of the funds stay with the local HBA; however, some funding goes to the SC Builders PAC.
- 80% is given to the local HBA for support of candidates they select;
- 15% goes to statewide candidates, such as the governor’s race;
- 5% helps defray the costs of operating the SC Builders PAC.
What about federal candidates?
State and federal law says state PACs that accept corporate or personal contributions may not contribute to candidates for federal office, such as Congressmen or U.S. Senators.
Why join the SC Builders PAC?
To a large extent, the climate for the home building industry is determined by state and local political decisions.
