Key Bills Awaiting Referral or Committee Hearing Dates

In our most recent blog post “California legislature begins voting on housing bills“, we outlined bills and pending legislation that may impact manufactured housing and mobile home parks in California. Our legal counsel and Thomas Pacelli, Vice President of Operations who is also on the Western Manufactured Housing Communities Association (WMA) legal committee, are monitoring the following bills that are awaiting referral or hearing dates.

  • Assembly Bill 3200 would create a pilot program to allow mobile home parks to transfer their existing water systems and the management and billing for water systems over to the serving water company regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).This bill is modeled after legislation that created the conversion program currently underway for natural gas and electric systems in mobile home parks.

  • Assembly Bill 2539 would give a “right of first refusal” to residents, resident groups, nonprofit organizations, and local governments when a mobile home park is listed for sale. Modeled after legislation in Colorado, the bill would delay the amount of time afforded to a mobile home park when a decision to sell the park is made. Many in the industry are against this measure, which will be heard on April 10. Learn more about AB 2539 here.
  • Assembly Bill 2022 would require park managers, park owners, or responsible persons to sign under penalty of perjury that they are fully able to assist emergency first responders in evacuating mobile home parks in emergencies such as fires or floods.Mobile home parks are already required to possess an emergency disaster plan, but AB 2022 goes beyond existing law and makes it the responsibility of park managers, owners, or responsible persons to have a working knowledge of fire hydrant pressure in the park, as well as knowledge of the status of the electrical and gas systems of the park, and forces managers, owners, or responsible persons to assist emergency first responders in an evacuation.A hearing date for AB 2022 has not been announced. Read more about the bill here.

We will continue to keep you updated on what bills pass and what that means for you, your park, and your residents. If you have any questions about how any of these bills might affect you and your community, feel free to reach out to us or your property manager.
