On the Pennsylvania House Agenda today was legislation known as SB 1141 and sponsored by Sen. Charles McIlhinney, R-Bucks/Montgomery. The bill defines a “relocated manufactured home” and requires the Department of Community and Economic Development to promulgate regulations regarding installation and safety requirements for relocated manufactured homes. The bill also provides that the permits currently required under the Uniform Construction Code for the installation and occupancy of manufactured housing would also apply to relocated manufactured homes. In addition, a permit for occupancy of a relocated manufactured home may not be issued unless the relocated manufactured home meets all requirements to comply with the manufactured home construction and safety standard, and the installer certifies the installation.
