Colorado Legislature Passes Both MHP Bills
The MHP Act Update bill and the Opportunity to Purchase bill (HB20-1196 and HB20-1201) have passed both Houses of the Colorado Legislature.
Both made it through their final stages with flying colors, passing final Senate Committee votes, and both passing their final Senate floor votes 24-11, with strong bipartisan support.
Both bills became law when signed by Governor Polis, Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
With passage of these bills, Colorado's manufactured home owners living in land lease communities (MHPs), will have increased protections and rights.
