State Government Relations Program
MHISC is at the SC Statehouse every day of the six-month legislative session. South Carolina law gives the association a seat on two key state agency boards, the SC Manufactured Housing Board and the SC Building Code Council. Legislators and state agencies turn to the association for expert input, statistics and ideas that have worked in other states as they consider drafting legislation or regulations.
The association has a track record of success in working for legislation to increase consumer satisfaction and higher standards in the sale and installation of factory-built homes. Contact Executive Director Mark Dillard for more information.
The manufactured housing industry is strictly regulated by both federal and state agencies. The US Department of Housing and Urban Development(HUD) oversees the design and construction of today’s manufactured homes. The SC Manufactured Housing Board, a division of the SC Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, is the state agency enforcing a wide range of rules and regulations that dealers, installers, builders and contractors must adhere to.
