How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Consensus Committee accomplishes its purpose by providing periodic (not less than once during each 2-year period) recommendations to the Secretary to adopt, revise and interpret:(1) the Federal Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards, and(2) the Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcemnent Regulations, including regulations specifying the permissible scope and conduct of monitoring.
How is membership balanced?*The MHCC, by its authorizing legislation, Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 (MHIA), is composed of 21 voting members and one non-voting Secretary’s Representative, all appointed by the Secretary. Additional membership requirements derived from the authorizing legislation are recounted below. The voting membership is allocated equally to three categories: (1) Producers (2) Users and, (3) General Interest and Public Officials. While the foregoing mathematically balances the interests on the Committee, the MHIA goes further by specifically requiring balance in participation and prohibiting dominance through the following provisions: (E) BALANCING OF INTERESTS- (i) IN GENERAL- In order to achieve a proper balance of interests on the consensus committee, the Secretary, in appointing the members of the consensus committee-- (I) shall ensure that all directly and materially affected interests have the opportunity for fair and equitable participation without dominance by any single interest and (II) may reject the appointment of any one or more individuals in order to ensure that there is not dominance by any single interest. (ii) DOMINANCE DEFINED- In this subparagraph, the term dominance means a position or exercise of dominant authority, leadership, or influence by reason of superior leverage, strength, or representation. MHIA goes even further. MHIA prohibits a significant financial interest by a portion of the MHCC membership and imposes ...a ban disallowing compensation from the manufactured housing industry during the period of, and during the 1-year following, the membership of the individual on the consensus committee. The foregoing statutory provision, in addition to Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) provisions and General Services Administration’s (GSA) implementing regulations provides a bedrock foundation for assuring that the MHCC is not only balanced in membership but also exhibits organization behavior that is consistent with the foregoing laws. HUD takes these matters seriously. It seeks nominees from a wide range of sources, randomly conduct audits to assure that the participation mandate is met, distributes the various interests among subcommittees and ensures that HUD-sourced MHCC resources are distributed and available to all interest categories and members.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*On an annual basis, the full committee meets twice a year if possible, and Subcommittees meet as necessary (usually once a year via teleconference) based on the amount of proposals or regulatory comments received. Meetings are relevant because during the meetings, the MHCC addresses proposed changes to the standards, as well as, address any regulatory comments submitted by the public.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The MHCC is mandated and established under the authority of Section 604(a) of the Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974 (the Act), 42 U.S.C. 5401 et seq.
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings are always open to the public; a requirement of the authorizing legislation.
