The Manufactured Housing Institute reminds industry members that the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act (H.R. 1779) has 50 co-sponsors and needs more support. The measure would preserve access to those seeking financing to purchase manufactured housing. Congress is on recess until Sept. 9, and MHProNews understands many representatives are in their home districts where they may be readily contacted. MHI suggests manufactured housing (MH) industry stakeholders invite their representative and staff to tour a factory in their district or an MH community to witness the importance of affordable housing. Another idea: Include them in a board meeting of the state association, or host a roundtable discussion with the representative and local industry leaders.
