Wisconsin Act 109 was signed into law by Governor Walker on November 30th. Alliance members, Eric Flood (of Flood Homes) and Jim Reitzner and Michael Seitz (of Asset Development Group) attended the signing.
This bill will make it clear in the law that building code violations are given to the manufactured homeowner and NOT the owner of the community:
“This bill provides that if a requirement of the one-family and two-family dwelling code applies to a manufactured home or an attachment to a manufactured home, the manufactured home owner must comply with that requirement. If the manufactured home is located in a manufactured home community, the operator of the community is not responsible for that compliance.”
Representative Joan Ballweg and Senator Lasee sponsored the bill. The bill was also supported by Representatives R. Brooks, Murphy, Gannon, Spiros, Kulp, Tittl, Steffen, Quinn, Ripp, Peterson, Berceau and Thiesfeldt, and cosponsored by Senators Feyen, Marklein, Nass and Bewley.
