Happy Independence Day from ALTA®

July 3, 2008

In July 1776, the Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress beginning the difficult journey creating these United States of America. Because of the vision, commitment, and sacrifice of our founding fathers, we enjoy many freedoms -- including the freedom to engage in commerce. The land title industry is an essential component of our free-enterprise systems providing the security necessary for people to buy property and establish businesses. Whether your business in Independence, Missouri, Freedom, California, Patriot, Indiana, or another American community, be proud of the role the title industry plays in keeping the greatest nation on Earth the best hope for the future.
