Bill Introductions Increase – Deadline Approaching Next Week

February 17th is the deadline for bills to be introduced, and the Legislative Counsel’s office is currently working to still draft over 1,000 legislative proposals submitted by Senators and Assemblymembers on a wide array of issues. WMA recently learned that more than 10,000 legislative ideas were submitted by legislators, but many of them have fallen by the wayside.

So far, there have been 947 bills introduced, but this number will significantly increase over the coming weeks. To view a comprehensive list of bills introduced, please click on the following link:

HCD Comment Period for Manufactured Housing Opportunity and Revitalization Program Now Open – Deadline for Comments is February 15, 2023

A trailer bill to the State Budget from 2022 (Senate Bill 197) required the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) to create the Manufactured Housing Opportunity & Revitalization Program (MORE). Senate Bill 197 authorizes HCD to make loans to mobilehome parks from a fund to correct health and safety violations that may have resulted in a suspension of their Permit to Operate.

HCD is currently seeking public comment on the draft regulations to comply with Senate Bill 197, and the deadline to file comments is February 15th. To view the HCD notice, please click on the following link:

The WMA Foundation – Promises Made and Promises Kept

The WMA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization funded by members of the manufactured housing community industry across California. It is designed to help residents who have been struck by fires, floods, earthquakes, or other disasters who need immediate financial assistance.

This past week, 101 families of the Arbor Mobilehome Park in Acampo were sent a total of $20,200 to provide relief assistance for a massive flooding event that forced evacuations and resulted in significant property damage. These checks were distributed by the WMA Foundation with no strings attached to help families in a quick and timely manner as they attempt to deal with the disaster they faced.

If you have been affected by a natural disaster and would like to learn more about the WMA Foundation, please visit the following link:
