Keep Pressure on Administration to Stop Excessive Energy Rule

Keep Pressure on Administration to Stop Excessive Energy Rule

Manufacturing News Government News

MHI has a multipronged strategy to stop the Department of Energy (DOE) standards for manufactured housing from being implemented until properly incorporated into the HUD Code to ensure feasibility and cost effectiveness. Exerting pressure on the Administration through Congress is a critical part
of this strategy. Representatives David Kustoff (TN-08) and Larry Bucshon (IN-08) are circulating a letter to their colleagues urging them to cosponsor their legislation, H.R. 7651, “The Manufactured Housing Affordability and
Energy Efficiency Act.”

This legislation requires that before any new DOE energy standards can become effective or be enforced: (1) DOE must fully consult with HUD, (2) DOE must document that the rule is cost-effective based on the impact of homebuyer price and cost increases, (3) the standards must fully take into consideration manufactured housing construction methods and transportation requirements, and (4) the standards must be adopted by HUD as part of the HUD Code.

It is critical that Representatives hear from all sectors of the manufactured housing industry about cosponsoring this bill.
