“The first session of the 57th Oklahoma Legislature completed its third month last week as the Senate and House completed hearing bills on the floor of their respective chamber by the April 25 deadline,” said the Manufactured Housing Association of Oklahoma (MHAO).
Governor Kevin Stitt has signed the bill that makes 18’ single sections legally transportable in Oklahoma.
“On [April] the 26th Governor Stitt signed HB 1217 which will allow homes not exceeding 18 to be transported upon the Interstate/Defense Highways, effective November 1st,” said the MHAO.
An 18’ wide single section can rival the size of a modest multisectional, without additional installation costs needed for two sections.
An example of an 18’ floorplan is shown.
“Governor Kevin Stitt and legislative leaders are continuing to negotiate the FY20 state budget and an agreement could be announced in the very near future. Sine Die is May 31 by 5:00pm, however depending on the timing of the budget agreement, it is possible legislators will adjourn earlier than that day,” said MHAO.
That said, and while this is useful, the industry is still down from 2018. See related reports, further below.
