THA Sponsored Transportation Bill Passes - June 18, 2020
SB 1775, Senate Vote: 31-0
HB 2201, House Vote: 90 - 0
Effective Date October 1, 2020
1. Modification to holiday restriction of home transports.
2. Regulatory Technical Correction
3. Transportable Width Modification
As a note, THA sponsored legislation in the 2019 session which modified the standard MH transportable height restriction from 15' 6", to 16'. These statutory changes and allowances will allow the industry to continue growing and exploring more home designs, to meet future market demands of our customers.
BIG THANKS to the Tennessee Department of Safety and the Tennessee Department of Transportation, for working on this bill with THA staff and our lobbying team, over the last 10 months!
Thank you to our 2020 bill sponsors, Senator Becky Massey (District 6 - Knoxville) and Representative Rick Tillis (District 92 - Lewisburg), for getting this Bill through all of the various committee hearings and up for floor votes!
