The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was enacted into law on July 21, 2010. The law is considered the most significant rewrite of rules governing banking and financial services in decades and will impact every financial institution and credit instrument in the nation.
At its Annual Meeting in September, MHI appointed a task force charged with identifying areas of the law problematic for the industry. In mid November, 20 members of MHI’s Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Taskforce convened in Dallas, Texas to identify and prioritize provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act that if unchanged, will significantly burden manufactured home purchasers by adding to the cost of acquiring a loan or restrict access to/availability of financing. The taskforce identified several regulatory and legislative remedies MHI must undertake to amend these provisions.
MHI will be introducing legislation with the new 112th Congress to address our needs. This issue will be the centerpiece of MHI legislative activities next year. At stake is the health and viability of the industry. Involvement from the entire MHI membership, and the entire industry, is necessary. Your involvement starts by reaching out to your members of Congress. You have an interest, you have a voice and you must play a role.
MHI will be hosting a Webinar on December 9, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern to assist industry members in how to begin to communicate with Congress on this complex issue. Please join us.
