Government Affairs Committee

This committee is responsible for identifying critical local, state, and national building industry issues that are relevant to our Builders, Remodelers and Associate Members.  Their focus is to educate our members on specific legislation including codes, mandates, tax, financial, immigration and other issues pertinent to our industry. They oversee meetings with local municipalities and representatives, including City and County Councils and work with the FHBA and NAHB on both state and national legislative issues.

What have we done for you lately?

This past year we were instrumental in the changes that took place at the County Planning Department and through our commitment to open the lines of communication between the TBA and our county leaders, these changes benefit both housing professionals and our community.

“Leon County Government and the Tallahassee Builders Association are longstanding partners in supporting the building and development community. In the past year, the County’s commitment to TBA and its members has resulted in significant improvements to the permitting process and customer service. Our ongoing collaboration ensures a continued, positive working relationship and a dedication to meet the evolving industry needs.”

-Vincent S. Long, Leon County Administrator
