Home COVID-19 NAHB issues statement on stimulus halt

Washington, D.C.—On Oct. 6, President Trump announced he was calling off coronavirus stimulus negotiations with Democrats until after the November election.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) said it believes both sides must resume talks immediately, and Chuck Fowke, NAHB chairman, issued the following statement following Trump’s announcement:

“The White House and congressional Republican and Democratic leaders need to put politics and posturing aside and think about the American people. It’s time for all sides to get back to the negotiating table and to quickly hammer out a coronavirus stimulus package that will provide economic relief to American home owners, renters and small businesses.”
