H.R 650 – Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act

Members of the House Financial Services Committee have reintroduced legislation to help our industry!  H.R 650, the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act of 2015 was introduced on February 2nd by Representatives Stephen Fincher (R-TN), Terri Sewell (D-AL), Andy Barr (R-KY) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ).

Last year, H.R 1779 was introduced and co sponsored by 114 bipartisan representatives.  The Financial Services Committee passed the bill by a unanimous voice vote.  Despite all of our efforts, the bill did not make it all the way through the process prior to adjournment. When it was reintroduced last week it was given a new number, and the co sponsorship list starts again at zero.  MHI has started an advocacy page to make it easy for all of us to contact our representatives and request their support.  Click here to send an email to your representative!
