“Put bluntly, CBIA delivers. In the past few years, CBIA has decreased potential residential energy standards compliance costs by 70%, helped defeat onerous inclusionary housing requirements, and enforced sensible limits on CEQA analysis on building projects. These are huge wins for our industry and we have CBIA to thank for them.”

Layne Marceau, President Northern California Division, Shea Homes

“The staff at CBIA knows exactly what is needed to keep our industry moving forward. Knowing that over regulation and ill-conceived public policy can wreak havoc on the housing market’s recovery; this team never takes their eyes off the ball and fights hard to keep housing affordable in California.”

Jeffrey M. Pemstein, Division President, Homes by Towne (A Zilber Brand)

“CBIA effectively serves as our frontline of defense against impractical housing and regulatory proposals that could have devastating consequences for the housing market. We need their guidance and insight to keep Sacramento policymakers informed and educated about the tremendous economic benefits our industry brings to every Region in our State.”
