Government Affairs

BCCAR's Legislative Committee works hard to form and continue nurturing relationships with our local and state leadership, conducting meetings and forums to open the lines of communication. BCCAR also employs Associated Business Solutions (ABS) in Trenton, to monitor our municipalities and help us pinpoint local issues or things that should be on our radar. With their assistance, BCCAR publishes our quarterly Municipal Monitor e-newsletter that helps keep our members informed. The New Jersey REALTORS® (NJR) are an integral part of our association and help keep us up-to-date with the bills and issues that affect the real estate industry.

The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is a PAC that supports leaders who support our industry. RPAC is non-partisan and helps to protect the livelihood of real estate professionals every day! Just a small fair share of $20 per year ensures you and the association a voice at the local, state and national levels. When agents ACT, VOTE and INVEST, they support the REALTOR® Party.

Contributions to RPAC are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Contributions are voluntary and are used for political purposes. The amounts indicated are merely guidelines and you may contribute more or less than the suggested amounts provided your contribution is within applicable contribution limits. The National Association of REALTORS® and its state and local associations will not favor or disadvantage any member because of the amount contributed or a decision not to contribute.  You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. Unless otherwise required by applicable law, any request for the refund of a contribution must be made within two (2) business days of the date on which you authorize RPAC to charge you for said contribution. Your contribution is split between National RPAC and the State PAC in your state.  Contact your State Association or PAC for information about the percentages of your contribution provided to National RPAC and to the State PAC.  The National RPAC portion is used to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 52 U.S.C. 30116.   (Rev. 6/2016)
