Our Government Affairs committee is focused on state and federal legislation that will affect our industry and seeks policy solutions that will help to expand and sustain opportunities for homeownership for hard working families and individuals. The committee follows bills that are introduced in the Arizona State Legislature and the United States Congress and Senate. This website will keep you, the membership, updated on the bills introduced and the status of those bills. The current versions of all of these bills can be found at

AMLA’s Government Affairs agenda also involves our primary regulator, the Department of Financial Institutions.
