MHC “Rent Justification” Defeated

Harking back to a story we posted May 3, 2012, the Delaware House of Representatives was considering a bill that would require approval from the Governor’s Advisory Council on Manufactured Housing for any increase in rent at an MHC beyond the consumer price index. DelawareFirst tells MHProNews Senate Bill 205, called the “rent justification bill,” failed to pass despite strong support from House Majority Whip Valerie Longhurst and House Majority Leader Pete Schwartzkopf. They said they are encouraged because the bill has been debated for years and it will likely be on the agenda in January. Longhurst, speaking to red-shirted supporters of the measure on the steps of Legislative Hall afterward said, “This is the furthest it’s ever gotten in the General Assembly.”
