On June 14, 2006 (71 FR 34476), HUD published its proposed rule that would establish a Federal manufactured home installation program. HUD is required to establish such a program in accordance with the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5401 et seq.), as amended by the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 (Title VI, Pub. L. 106-659, enacted December 27, 2000). States that have their own installation programs that include the elements required by statute are permitted to administer under their own state installation programs the new requirements that would be established through this proposed and final rulemaking.
The June 14, 2006, proposed rule provided for a 60-day public comment period. In response to significant public interest, HUD wants to provide additional time for interested parties to prepare and submit comments that HUD will consider in the development of the final rule; therefore, HUD is announcing through this notice that it is extending the public comment period on the June 14, 2006, proposed rule for an additional month. The new public comment deadline is September 14, 2006.Start Signature
