Sources with ties to Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) tell MHProNews that the number of sponsors and co-sponsors for S 1828 has jumped from 4 to 9 as a direct result of the recent visits by members to their U.S. Senators. Dan Coates (R-IN), Rand Paul (R-KY), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Jim Inhofe (R-OK) all joined sponsor Joe Donnelly (D-IN), original cosponsor Tom Coburn (R-OK) and cosponsors Tim Scott (R-SC) and Pat Toomey (R-PA).
There are also 108 Congressman – 20 Democrats and 88 Republicans – who have signed onto the House version of this legislation, HR 1779.
“This proves that we have positive movement.” a source close to the lobbying efforts said. Sources tell us there are more expected to sign on in both sides of Congress in the days ahead. Industry members are urged to contact their Senators or House members to ask for their support. ContactCongress.org ##
