MHI Summer Legislative Fly-In
June 3 – 4, 2019
Every year, MHI holds its Legislative Fly-In Program in Washington, DC, an intensive two-day program that provides participants with an inside look at the public policy process and where members visit Congressional offices to advocate for the industry. This year’s event has been rescheduled and revamped to coordinate the annual event with manufactured homes which will be on display on the National Mall.
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson is hosting a week-long Innovative Housing Showcase on the National Mall to commemorate National Homeownership Month. MHI members Adventure Homes and Skyline Champion have reserved spaces to display manufactured homes as part of the showcase and others may still participate.
Each year MHI members come to Washington, D.C. to discuss key legislative and regulatory initiatives and challenges with their lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Last year MHI members took part in more than 100 visits with U.S. Representatives and Senators as part of the Summer Legislative Fly-In. We also hosted current White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and presented 8 members of Congress with MHI’s Champions of Homeownership award for their support for manufactured housing.
This year, our “Homes on the Hill” Summer Legislative Fly-In is timed so MHI members can not only meet with Congressional officials about our priorities but can also invite their lawmakers to tour the manufactured homes located just a few steps away on the National Mall!
Annual Meeting - First Event
HUD has published a ‘proposed’ rule in the Federal Register, which would adopt new formaldehyde standards for composite wood products used in the production of manufactured homes. This proposed change would eliminate the health notice which is required to be displayed in every new home shipped from the manufacturer.
Anyone interested in commenting on this rule, may find more information HERE. Comments are due by April 22, 2019.
MHI Publishes Information to Help Manufactured Housing Retailers, Sellers,
and Community Owners Understand The Impact of Recent Changes
to the Dodd-Frank Act on their Businesses
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) paper regarding compliance with Section 107 of the “Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act” (Pub. L. 115-174 § 107). Entitled “Dodd-Frank Act Changes Provide Relief for Manufactured Housing Retailers and Community Owners,” the paper addresses common questions that members have shared concerning the implementation of this law, which amended the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), by adding an exception to the definition of mortgage originator which excludes manufactured home retailers, sellers.
