November 21, 2017 – H.R. 1699 to be Voted on by U.S. House of Representatives Next Week
The United States House of Representatives is expected to vote next week on H.R. 1699, the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act.
The bill addresses federal regulations implementing the Dodd-Frank Act that have jeopardized access to manufactured housing financing, and as a result disrupted the market. Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data shows that consumers have been shut out of the market for manufactured housing because CFPB regulations have caused financing to be less available for manufactured homes.
Please contact your Representative and ask them to vote in favor of H.R. 1699, the Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act.
