The Recreational Vehicle (RV)/Manufactured Housing (MH) Hall of Fame (Hall) Selection Committee is actively seeking nominations for the class of 2014. Darryl Searer, Hall president, said, “The Hall welcomes nominations from all RV and manufactured housing sectors — manufacturers, dealers, campgrounds, housing communities, suppliers, user groups, trade media, associations, etc.” The nominee must have been involved in either industry for at least 25 years. Hall Chairman Barry Cole said, “Time is running out for nominations to the Hall’s Class of 2014, so I urge my colleagues to honor their friends and co-workers by submitting their nominations before the October 31 deadline.” MHProNews understands the nomination process has been streamlined by the Board of Directors.

Freshman Congressman (and Banker) Sets Sights on Housing

January 30th, 2013 Comments off

According to nationalmortgagenews, newly elected Representative John Delaney (D-MD) will take his seat on the House Financial Services Committee with an eye on reforming the nation’s housing finance system and reducing government intervention. With a background including establishment of a healthcare finance company and organizer of BancAlliance, a community loan bank cooperative, Delaney sees opportunity to tweak Dodd-Frank. Believing lawmakers can deal with risks in the industry in other ways, he says “We have a lot of implementation to do, and then we have to understand how it all works and continue to make adjustments. These things are really living regulations. You don’t pour the concrete to never look at it again.” He wants to reduce the role of the GSEs because the government tends to crowd out private capital in some cases. As MHProNews has learned, he sees the government’s role as providing an environment for the private sector to become more successful, which will in turn lead to job growth. One of the wealthiest members of Congress, colleagues laud his skill in complex negotiations, a trait that should serve him well in his new role.
