Red Alert

WMA Opposes AB 3066 (Stone)
Gut and Amend of last year's AB 1269 (Stone)

AB 3066 (Stone) is a re-introduction of AB 1269 (Stone) from last year, which was vetoed by Governor Brown. It was introduced past the regular deadlines on June 18 by gutting and amending an innocuous bill that had already been passed to the second house. 

WMA opposes the legislation because it provides absolutely no right to cure alleged violations of the Mobilehome Residency Law before being referred to legal aid. Similar to the previous legislation, it authorizes park operators to pass along a $10 per space fee to all mobilehome owners.

Prop. 13 targeted by proposed California ballot initiative

Forty years after Proposition 13 was approved by California voters, the issue of property-tax limits could be back on the state ballot in 2018.

A coalition of liberal groups is trying to qualify an initiative for the November ballot that would remove Prop. 13’s restrictions on reassessments and tax increases for corporate-owned property.

Mobile-home values might rise as fast as regular homes — here’s why that matters

Many have long held the assumption that mobile homes don’t increase in value — or, at the very least, they rise in value at a much slower rate than traditional homes.

But recent data suggests the opposite is true — and that could have major implications in the push for increased affordable housing nationwide.

Can rent control solve the housing crisis? California leaders are divided

When California voters get tired of waiting for their politicians to act, they turn to the statewide ballot initiative as their weapon of last resort.

The Sacramento Bee’s readers have been telling us for months through the “Your Voice” feature that the out-of-control cost of housing has become a major concern — if not cause for alarm. So it should be no surprise that when Californians cast their general election ballots this fall, more than one-third of the measures on their ballot are designed to address the need for affordable housing.

Vote NO on Prop 10 This November

This November, Californians will have the chance to go to the polls and vote on a whole slew of issues including who will be selected to lead our state as our next governor, whether to keep or repeal a recently enacted gas tax, or whether it makes sense to keep or eliminate daylight savings. Unfortunately, there is another proposition on the ballot, Proposition 10, that if passed will have profoundly negative effects on California’s economy, our housing industry, including the manufactured housing industry, renters, and apartment owners both large and small.
