Mobile Home Bill Passes In Michigan

LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Serious health and sanitation issues are the main reason the Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park in Lansing is still closed today and why hundreds of people were forced from their homes last year.

Legislation to prevent this from happening again has moved on to the state senate. The bill regulates mobile home communities across the state.

Representative Andy Schor says the legislation increases communication between the state and county departments, increases fines for violations that go unfixed and creates an insurance like program in case a park gets condemned.

Those that used to live at Life O’Riley told us they hope the new bill will prevent other people from going through the same thing they did.

The bill has already passed in the Michigan house.
