Invest in RPAC TODAY!!


The REALTORS Political Action Committee is working for you. 
The REALTORS Political Action Committee (RPAC) works for REALTORS in city hall, Albany and Washington, D.C. Your contributions to RPAC support federal, state and local lawmakers who share the REALTOR commitment to promote homeownership and private property rights.

RPAC is administered by an autonomous group of REALTOR trustees representing all regions of New York. Decisions on contributions to candidates are based on an individual's voting record, not party affiliations. It is a candidate's demonstration of support for REALTOR issues that leads to an RPAC contribution. To view the 2018 RPAC Trustee Roster, click here.

RPAC works tirelessly to protect your interests
Actions by local, state and federal lawmakers and regulators can greatly affect your ability to be a successful REALTOR. RPAC works tirelessly to protect the real estate industry and provides you with a platform to be involved and influential in these legislative and regulatory issues. Your participation in RPAC creates a powerful force to educate lawmakers about the issues that matter most to you and your livelihood.

 

What does RPAC do?
RPAC works to elect lawmakers who support REALTOR business interests. While you were working with clients and customers, RPAC played an important role in electing lawmakers that successfully shaped legislation important to REALTORS such as:

  • Extending the first-time homebuyer tax credit.
  • Extending the National Flood Insurance Program.
  • Blocking legislation that would have prevented New York State REALTORS from conducting business outside their home county.
  • Streamlining your ability to show property through the passage of advanced consent to dual agency.
  • Defeating proposals that would have increased closing costs in New York State.

Why should I invest in RPAC?
There's no other organization that represents your interests and your livelihood as a REALTOR. Now more than ever, REALTORS must keep RPAC working to protect you interests. REALTORS must stand up for their business interests. Nobody else will do it for you!

Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. You may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS, the New York State Association of REALTORS or any of its local boards or associations will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by your state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your NYSAR PAC reaches its PAC goal, 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C. 441a; after NYSAR PAC reaches its RPAC goal, it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
