Thank you all for inviting me to join you this morning. This is my final stop on a two-day bus tour I've had the privilege to take across the Great American South. The focus of my travels has been to meet with local public officials, community leaders and industry representatives to see how we can work together to reduce regulatory barriers that drive up the cost of housing.
