NAIOP Statement: Moving Forward with a New Administration

Thomas Bisacquino, NAIOP president and CEO, offered the following statement following the November 2016 presidential election:

With the election results in and our president and congressional makeup determined, NAIOP looks forward to a period of growth and opportunity for our industry.

President-elect Trump has pledged to tackle the issues vital to our nation's growth — comprehensive tax reform, rebuilding infrastructure, reducing regulations, and job creation. NAIOP offers our support to both the administration and Congress and will actively represent our industry, believing that your business, your tenants, and the industry at large will greatly benefit from fair, steady government policy that incentivizes growth.   

It has never been more important that policymakers — both those returning to Capitol Hill and those newly elected — understand the valuable role our industry plays in the U.S. economy. As new policies are introduced and legislation moves forward, be assured that NAIOP will be at the table, and remember that your involvement is critical in advancing our agenda.

We are optimistic that the president-elect will develop and successfully advance a pro-growth agenda for all Americans. I thank you for your support of NAIOP and, as always, please feel free to contact me.
