REALTOR® Political Action Committee

One of the most effective tools that we use to help you is RAPAC, your REALTOR® Political Action Committee. These are just a few of the actions we have successfully taken because of your investment in RAPAC:

RAPAC stopped a proposed City of Tucson Charter Change.

The change would have removed existing caps on property taxes, allowing the City of Tucson an additional half billion dollars in property tax capacity.

RAPAC passed Proposition 101 in the City of Tucson.

Prop 101 is repairing Tucson roads and buying lifesaving equipment for our policies and firefighters. The money can only be used for road repairs and public safety.

RAPAC saved you hundreds of dollars a year in additional business expenses

We passed legistlation preventing cities from requiring you to obtain a business license in every city in Arizona you sell real estate.

RAPAC saves you money in doing business in Oro Valley.

Use the TAR sign permit in Oro Valley and you won't have to spend $1,000 a year to buy your own permit.

RAPAC changes Tucson's sign code to allow open house signs in public rights of way.

The code change allows REALTORS to legally put up open house signs in the public right of ways. For more than 20 years, open house signs have been technically illegal in Tucson until the changes were made.

RAPAC partnered TAR and Pima County to obtain a federal government Land Permit.

The permit allows residents to grow and develop their land while protecting critical habitats and endangered species.

RAPAC helps Realtors serve as community leaders.

REALTORS, for example, have a member service on a local government citizens committee that contributes over $3 million to homeless and domestic violence programs, food banks, elder care programs, youth programs, HIV awareness, housing assistance, emergency shelters, and programs to assist people in our community with disabilities.

RAPAC protected the mortgage interest deduction.

The Mortgage Interest Deduction makes home ownership possible to millions of Americans.

RAPAC reformed the national flood insurance program.

The National Flood Insurance Program assists many Southern Arizona families if a major flood were to occur again in our area.

RAPAC elects local Government Officials who support & understand our industry.

Together we work for you to make your job easier and more profitable.
