housing prices are higher than they need to be because of
regulations that drive up building costs. Some regulation is of

localities to work with local builders and lenders to eliminate
unnecessary burdens that price many families out of the market. We

Washington. We also encourage the modification of restrictions that
inhibit the rehabilitation of existing distressed properties.

now have fewer lines to fill out on tax forms, freeing up an
estimated 9.5 million hours previously used for paperwork every
