The Legislative Committee plays a crucial role for FABA member businesses. This group is responsible for reviewing and influencing proposed legislation and regulations. These proposals affect Spotsylvania, Stafford, King George, Caroline and Orange Counties as well as the City of Fredericksburg.
Staying abreast of local issues that affect the building industry, members research proposed ordinances and work with local governments to try to bring about change that is satisfactory to members and government. Members of this committee attend county meetings, monitor state and local government activities, and speak at public hearings on items of interest to FABA. They also work in coordination with the HBAV Legislative Committee on issues at the state level. This committee typically meets the third Thursday of each month at 8:30 am.
The Fredericksburg Area Construction Trust Political Action Committee, or FACT-PAC, is organized to provide financial support to candidates for local and statewide government offices who believe that home ownership should remain a dream that is possible for every citizen of Virginia.
