Federation of Manufactured Home Owners

BULLETIN BOARD FOR NEW MESSAGES

    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
    • 1) Although both bills were passed through committees it was after the sponsors of both SB818 and SB998 informed the committees their intention to bring the parties together and work on a compromise bill.
    • 2) Your contacts with the Committee members was noted and they were impressed with your knowledge and courtesy. It raised enough concern that the sponsors believed they had to do further work.
    • 3) Although Senator Hooper sponsored the FMHA bill he committed both publicly and privately to bringing the parties together to create a better bill.
    • Frankly speaking, without this effort on his part this bill would go through and become law. The influence FMHA has in Tallahassee has been underestimated by us all.
    • 4) Jesse James and I learned so much more about the process and our shortcomings during our visit. Those invitations to your Legislators have not been acted upon enough. I intend to lead us into more political activity this year beginning with a voter registration drive.
    • 5) There is no need at this point to continue to contact these Legislators until we go through the negotiating process.
    • 6) Our bill SB1022 currently has no traction and chances of it advancing this year appear unlikely. We are novices in the Political arena. The Republican Senate does not endorse binding arbitration. Nancy has approached them all and only Senator Rouson, a Democrat was willing to sponsor us.
    • 7) You must understand our position in this process. Essentially we must negotiate or let the bill go through as written. We have already put together our wants to Senator Hooper.
    • Thank you for all your efforts and we will keep you up to date as things happen.
    • Nancy Stewart, Jesse James and Jerry Durham
