Call Senators to vote No on AB 1269
WMA has launched the “No Renters Fee” advocacy program, a grassroots campaign that aims to defeat Assembly Bill 1269.
Bill Analysis: AB 1269 (Stone) establishes a state program under the auspices of the Department of Fair Employment and Housing for the administrative investigation and enforcement of complaints alleging violations of the Mobilehome Residency Law. The needless program will be funded by a $5 fee on mobilehome owners. However, the Legislature’s analysis of AB 1269 says $5 is not sufficient revenue for the program. As the fee increases over time, WMA believes the number of homeowners defaulting on payment of the fee will increase. Since the fee cannot be included in rent, park owners may be liable for payment.
AB 1269 has passed the State Assembly, and with your support, the bill can be defeated in the Senate Appropriations Committee before it reaches the Governor’s desk. So far, a coalition of over 400 parkowners and residents have signed a petition opposing the bill, and today, they are actively contacting their State Senators.
Action Request: Please encourage your homeowners to join the “No Renter’s Fee” campaign. Your residents can visit www.NoRentersFee.com to sign an electronic petition, and download flyers to be distributed in your park. This campaign is well underway and must be completed by August 18, 2017. If you own parks represented by Senators who serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee, your support takes on added importance. We can design flyers specific to your park’s location.
Thank you for your assistance. If you have any questions regarding the legislation or this campaign, please call Catherine Borg at 916-448-7002.
