NVAR Legislative Program

Legislative Program

Every spring, NVAR compiles legislative and regulatory policy goals for the coming year into a document called the NVAR Legislative Program.

The Legislative Program is developed over several months based on feedback given by NVAR members. The process begins in March, when NVAR committees and forums are asked to submit issues to the NVAR Public Policy Committee for consideration. Individual Realtors® may also submit issues to the committee. A task force researches these issues and recommends pertinent ones for inclusion in the Legislative Program.

Once a draft program has been developed, the Public Policy Committee reviews it and sends a final draft to NVAR’s Board of Directors for consideration. Following approval by the Board, NVAR forwards the program to the Virginia Association of Realtors® for inclusion in the statewide list of legislative priorities.

An important component of the issues we look at is your voice. If you have suggestions for items we should be looking into please email us at OR fill out this quick form.

NVAR's group of Realtors®, including major investors, industry advocates, members of the Public Policy Committee and our 2024 Leadership Institute, traveled to the state capitol in Richmond for a full-day of meetings with our elected officials, their staff and our Virginia Realtors® advocacy team. This included:

  • Glenn Youngkin, Governor of Virginia
  • Winsome Earle-Sears, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia
  • W. Sheppard "Shep" Miller III, Virginia Secretary of Transportation
  • Bryan Horn, Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development Director
  • Kelly Gee, Virginia Secretary of the Commonwealth
  • Caren Merrick, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade

Attendees also had time to view the session and see the legislatures in action, as well as to roam the state capitol for self-guided tours during lunch.
