Senator Mike Crapo has represented the people of Idaho in the United States Senate since taking office in 1999. Before that he represented Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District in the House of Representatives. For the 116th Congress, Senator Crapo returns to Chair of the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee.
Not only does Senator Crapo chair the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, but he also serves on the Finance, Budget, and Judiciary Committees, putting him in an influential position when it comes to legislation dealing with the multifamily industry. From housing affordability and taxes to GSE, NFIP and regulatory reform, Chairman Crapo has a seat at the table for some of the most consequential policy discussions impacting our industry.
Throughout his time in Congress, NMHC has maintained a close working relationship with Senator Crapo and his staff. NMHC continuously meets with Senator Crapo to ensure that the views and opinions of the multifamily industry are front and center during relevant debates in the Senate. In fact, NMHC staff and leadership met with Senator Crapo on March 6 (pictured above) to discuss several issues of importance to the industry.
