HOMEPAC, TAB's political action committee, is an essential part of TAB's advocacy program. HOMEPAC maximizes political contributions by association members by supporting pro-housing candidates and incumbents for both statewide office and the Texas Legislature. It is through voluntary contributions that HOMEPAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the residential construction and development industry in Texas.
Without HOMEPAC’s participation, decisions affecting the future of the residential building industry will be influenced by other industries and groups, many of whom represent interests directly opposed to our own. It’s only through the voluntary contributions of our members that HOMEPAC can help preserve a positive political climate for the home building and development industry in Texas.
Suggested Donation Levels:
Payments can be completed in one transcation or made in quarterly payments.
Members who donate to the Capitol Club, Diamond Key, Platinum Key and Gold Key levels will receive a lapel pin and special recognition at PAC events. Donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated.
HOMEPAC represents your political interests at the state level and is prohibited by law from donating to federal election campaigns. Additionally, HOMEPAC is forbidden by state law from accepting corporate donations and, therefore, may accept only personal or non-corporate contributions. There is no limit to what an individual may contribute to HOMEPAC.
*If payment is from a partnership, LLC or other legal entity, the entity cannot be owned by a corporation or include an incorporated member or partner.
Invest today in the future of our industry! When the 10,000 members of the Texas Association of Builders come together through HOMEPAC, the home building industry maintains its strong presence at the Texas Capitol. Changes in state law or regulations could be detrimental to your business and bottom line. Your contribution to HOMEPAC is an investment in the future of our industry and one of the most affordable options for political involvement.
HOMEPAC is governed by a Board of Trustees who represent all areas of the state and their local home builders associations. The Trustees determine which political candidates will receive support based on the following criteria:
