Be Sure that Your Congressional Representative Signed on to Cosponsor H.R. 3327
After successfully delaying the compliance date for the Energy Rule, we need to fix the law to ensure the industry never again faces the challenges caused by conflicting regulations coming from two different federal agencies. Congress must hear from all sectors of the manufactured housing industry about the urgent need to change federal statute.
Congressman David Kustoff (R-TN) and Congresswoman Terri Sewell (D-AL) introduced H.R. 3327, the Manufactured Housing Affordability and Energy Efficiency Act of 2023. This bipartisan legislation clarifies and reaffirms the longstanding role of HUD as the sole regulator of federal manufactured housing construction standards. This bill will prevent future issues with conflicting standards originating from different federal agencies.
Join the industry's efforts and tell your Representative to support H.R. 3327. To participate in this Call to Action click here and follow the simple steps on MHI's website. MHI created a template letter you can send your Representative by simply inserting your home address and clicking submit.
Thus far, industry members have sent over 340 messages to their representatives. The top states contacting their members of Congress are Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, Wisconsin, and Louisiana. Thanks to these efforts, twelve additional Representatives have signed on to cosponsors the legislation including Representatives Warren Davidson (OH-8), Charles Fleischmann (TN-3), Mike Rogers (AL-3), Rudy Yakym (IN-2), John Rose (TN-6), Bryan Steil (WI-1), Glenn Thompson (PA-15), Lori Chavez-DeRemer (OR-5), Andy Barr (KY-6), French Hill (AR-2), Tracy Mann (KS-1), and Tim Burchett (TN-2).
On Friday, August 11th, Representative John Rose (TN-06) introduced H.R. 5198, the Expansion of Attainable Homeownership Through Manufactured Housing Act of 2023. This bill would revise the definition of manufactured housing by removing the phrase “built on a permanent chassis” from the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974.
Allowing for the removal of the chassis would allow HUD Code homes to match the profile and exterior aesthetics of other homes. This is particularly noticeable when manufactured homes are placed in communities with predominantly site-built homes. This bill is the result of ongoing advocacy efforts for manufactured housing in Congress and the support of our members.
The 2023 session of the 113th General Assembly adjourned on Friday, April 21, 2023.
The General Assembly will reconvene at 12:00 noon (CST) on Tuesday, January 9, 2024.
