01:36 PM -- House Bill 09-1171
Senator Kester presented House Bill 09-1171. The bill concerns requirements related to the installation of manufactured homes. Under current law, applicants seeking to renew their registration as a manufactured home installer must provide proof of liability insurance and proof that they have completed eight hours of educated approved by the Division of Housing in the Department of Local Affairs. Prior to January 1, 2009, applicants had to provide proof of liability insurance and a letter of credit, certificate of deposit, or surety bond, but there was no requirement for continuing education. House Bill 09-1171 reinstates the requirement that applicants provide a letter of credit, certificate of deposit, or surety bond at the time of applying for renewal, in addition to providing proof of insurance and continuing education.
The bill also gives the Division of Housing the discretion to inspect the installation of a manufactured home if requested by the home's owner, installer, manufacturer, or retailer. Under current law, the division is required to conduct an inspection if requested. Senator Kester explained that the bill reinstated requirements that are important for the installation of manufactured homes.
