THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

Over the next couple of days, the Senate and House will be completing work on an omnibus appropriation bill. We need you to contact your Congressperson and Senators TODAY to ask them to urge them to put the provisions of H.R. 650/S. 682 into an omnibus appropriation bill.

This takes ONE CLICK HERE.

More Manufactured Home Loans Means More Homes Sold in 2016

December 7th, 2015 No comments

We’ve been talking about getting some relief from the Dodd–Frank law. We have an opportunity to get that done this year. The situation is that we getting very close to final decisions being made about what policy material will be included in the very large omnibus appropriations bill. It’s literally all the appropriations bills rolled into one bill. There will be winners and losers in this process. Not every policy matter that interest groups want will be included in the bill.

The winners will be those who want it the most. Do you really want some reform this year? Do you want more lending for 2016?  If so, please contact your House member and two Senators.

We can’t presume they will help us. Even if they have indicated support, we have to keep reminding them. It’s a mad house there as Congress tries to close out business for the year.

Take a couple of minutes today – not tomorrow, or some day soon – to click on the link below.

This link is MHI’s system to contact your two Senators and your House members. It’s really easy and quick.

Let’s do it now!

Thanks,

Joe

P.S. We really need to win this year….conditions are always changing in Congress. We never know what the situation will be like in 2016. It’s an election year and bills will be harder to pass next year!

EZ! Virtually Charging “The Hill” for more Manufactured Home Lending

July 24th, 2015 No comments

The Hill is a newspaper and blog read extensively on Capitol Hill.  This week L.A. ‘Tony’ Kovach was invited to post an article about manufactured housing.  He laid down a great defense of the industry and its lending practices in response to all of the consumer group complaints.

We invite you to read the blog and post your own reply.  The more industry members add to this article the better.

(Editor’s Note – Ross is a leader who first takes his own advice.  Mr. Kinzler has posted a fine comment on the topic, and others in MH have followed suit.  Be it a short or longer comment, make your voice heard on this issue, please.  If you want more MH lending, if you want to help those MH owners harmed by the CFPB’s regulations, sound off where the DC media, Congress, staff and policy advocates read.

Then, forward the link above via email to your Senators and Congressman, with a thank you for their support)
