“Written comments submitted by two highly-respected independent organizations regarding the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) proposed manufactured housing “energy” rule — specifically citing the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) — echo and confirm the vigorous objections to that proposed rule set out by the Association in its own comprehensive August 8, 2016 written comments,” MHARR said in a press release to MHProNews.
The Small Business Administration (SBA) – stated in a document found as a download from the full release, linked here – that the DOE rule does “not comply” with the requirements of the federal Regulatory Fairness Act.
Further, the SBA stated that the DOE proposed rule “would have significantly disproportionate economic impacts on small manufactured home manufacturers if finalized” leading, among other things, to adverse impacts on competition within the industry...”
The Regulatory Studies Center also made a statement on this issue.
“Citing MHARR materials published in the industry trade journal, MHProNews – echoes serious concerns over anti-competitive effects resulting from the DOE proposed rule,” reads the MHARR release.
