NSU Pi Kapp lobbies on Capitol Hill for Greek housing bill

NSU Pi Kapp lobbies on Capitol Hill for Greek housing billWil Adams, president of the Beta Omicron Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi, will represent fraternities and sororities across the country in the ‘Greeks on Capitol Hill Visit’ on April 17, 2009.

Adams, along with other program participants, will undergo training with a Washington, D.C. lobbying firm that will prepare the Greeks to interact with members of Congress. The focus of the program is to advance the Collegiate Housing Infrastructure Act. If passed, the legislation would make financial contributions to fraternity and sorority houses tax-deductible.

“This is a way for us to highlight many of the positive things that Greek organizations do to help their universities and communities,” he said. “I know how vital the support of alumni members are to my own chapter house. It wouldn’t be possible without their financial support. They shouldn’t have to pay taxes on a donation to keep our house safe.”

Adams is no stranger to politics. He currently serves as President of the NSU College Republicans. In 2007 he was a campaign volunteer for Louisiana State Representative Rick Nowlin. He also gained experience as a staff member for the 2008 campaign of Congressman John Fleming.
