Western Manufactured Housing Communities Association (WMA) is a nonprofit organization created in 1945 for the exclusive purpose of promoting and protecting the interests of owners, operators and developers of manufactured home communities in California.
People who purchased a mobilehome or manufactured home but didn’t receive the necessary title to the property now have a chance to properly register their homes with the new Fee and Tax Waiver Program – and avoid paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars in state and local taxes, fees and penalties.
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.
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.
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.
