MHARR to HUD: Respond to Affordable Housing Need, not Regulators

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), in its continuing attempts for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to fully and properly implement the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 which especially impacts the industry’s smaller businesses, sent a letter July 19, 2012 to HUD Assistant Secretary for Housing-Federal Housing Commissioner Carol Galante suggesting: The Secretary reject the pending “conditional” federal sprinkler standard; subject expanded in-plant regulation to Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC) review and rule making; HUD should reduce funding for the program monitoring contract and allocate resources to the State Administrative Agencies (SAAs); and HUD should finalize action on an “On Site Completion” rule. MHProNews notes, as MHARR has asked repeatedly, that HUD make manufactured housing a priority in response to the need for affordable housing in these United States.
