Ohio Senate to Consider House of Representatives New Budget Bill which Restores the Ohio Manufactured Homes Commission

The Ohio General Assembly House of Representatives removed proposed legislative language in the original State of Ohio Budget bill that would have abolished the Ohio Manufactured Homes Commission. The House amendment in Sub. HB 49 restores the Manufactured Homes Commission. However, the Senate will hold hearings and vote whether to keep the House amendment that restores present law maintaining the Ohio Manufactured Homes Commission.

Keep in mind without the Commission, the Kasich Administration’s previous proposal in the original State Budget bill would have transferred manufactured homes regulation to the Department of Commerce bureaucracy at a significantly higher cost while reducing home installation inspections. And, it is likely new burdensome regulations and higher fees would have been enacted in future years.
