Rep. Keith Ellison Introduces Bill Supporting Mobile Home Parks
Rep. Keith Ellison introduces bill supporting mobile home parks
U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., wants to protect mobile home residents against the abrupt sale of the parks where they live.
A measure he proposed Wednesday would use a federal tax incentive to encourage mobile park owners to sell their property to residents or a nonprofit developer, while also ensuring the property is used for mobile homes for at least 50 years following the sale.
A companion bill was introduced in the Senate.
