As previously reported earlier this week in an exclusive MHI “Housing Alert,” MHI has learned that Bill Matchneer, the Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary for Regulatory Affairs and Manufactured Housing will be transferred to HUD’s Office of the General Counsel. Obviously this change has implications for MHI’s priorities regarding the Safe Act and the Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Program. We have been in touch with the Commissioner and with the Office of Manufactured Housing and we have been assured that this change will not impede efforts to work with MHI to move the industry forward. We understand that Bill Matchneer will continue to play an important role in issues impacting our industry, and we wish him all the best.
