Subject: Co-Sponsor H.Res 25. Preserve, Protect, & Defend the Mortgage Interest Deduction.

Dear [Decision Maker],

As both your constituent and as one of more than one million members of the National Association of REALTORS, I remain steadfast in my belief that economic recovery depends in large measure on recovery in the housing market. That recovery is by no means complete and, in fact, the market is still quite weak.

Please show your support of stable housing policy by cosponsoring H.Res.25, a bipartisan resolution offered by Rep. Gary Miller. Realtors believe that wide cosponsorship of this resolution will send a strong signal that Congress remains committed to a housing recovery.

H. Res.25 expresses the sense of Congress that the current law governing the MID must be retained. To restrict current law in any way would undermine progress in the still-fragile housing recovery.

Please join Mr. Miller and your colleagues in sending a strong signal that you support a stable housing market and that you support the current MID rules. Please co-sponsor H.Res. 25.

Preserve, Protect and Defend MID

NAR has issued a major Call-for-Action regarding the preservation of the Mortgage Interest Deduction.

You can shape legislation by being heard early and with strong conviction. This is one of those times. Congress needs to hear from you. Warning signs have appeared on Capitol Hill about mortgage interest deductibility. Homeowners have taken big hits the past few years. We cannot have Congress adding to the injury.

Watch NAR President Ron Phipp’s video Call for Action explaining why our action is so urgent. Then send your letter asking your Representative to cosponsor H.Res25, a bipartisan House resolution that affirms the value and importance of the Mortgage Interest Deduction.

Realtors need to direct Congress to Preserve, Protect and Defend the MID. No economic recovery is possible without a vibrant housing market. Please Take Action today.
