For the past several months, KCHBA has actively engaged U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and his staff on this urgent issue. Recently, Senator Moran shared his concerns with United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai during a congressional hearing. Sen. Moran later took the floor of the Senate and spoke about the harm these prices are inflicting on home buyers and the industry that serves them.
As a result, in an article on nbcnews.com published yesterday titled, “Should Joe Biden worry about soaring lumber prices?,” Senator Moran was quoted saying, “The reality is that record high lumber prices are putting the American dream of homeownership out of reach for hundreds of thousands of potential homebuyers.” Sen. Moran also teamed up with U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) to urge Ambassador Tai and U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo to take action to resolve the trade dispute between the U.S. and Canada on softwood lumber.
