Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the  Manufactured  Home  Quality  Assurance  Act,  to  be      
   administered  by  the  Department of Public Health.  Provides that the      
   Department is responsible for enforcing mobile home  setup  standards.      
   Requires  that a mobile home manufacturer be licensed to sell a mobile      
   home that is to be installed  in  this  State.   Provides  that  after      
   December 31, 2002, a licensed mobile home installer must supervise the      
   installation  of a mobile home.  Provides that a mobile home installer      
   who has satisfactorily completed a course approved by  the  Department      
   before  January 1, 2002 does not have to take any additional course of      
   study or training to qualify for a license.  Authorizes the Department      
   of Public Health to issue licenses to  manufacturers  and  installers.      
   Provides for the deposit of licensing fees into the Facility Licensing      
   Fund.   Requires  the  Department  to  serve  as a liaison between the      
   State,  mobile  home  park  owners  and  tenants,  and   mobile   home      
   manufacturers,  dealers,  and  installers.   Creates  the Manufactured      
   Housing Quality Assurance Board to advise the  Department.   Does  not      
   require a person who installs a mobile home on his or her own property      
   outside a mobile home park to obtain an installer's license.  Preempts      
   home  rule  powers,  except that the Act does not apply to a home rule      
   municipality with a population over 1,000,000.  Effective  January  1,      
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        In the list of persons between  whom  the  Department  of  Public      
   Health  is  to  serve  as  a liaison, replaces "tenants of mobile home      
   parks" with "purchasers of mobile homes".  Provides that the Governor,      
   instead of the Department of Public Health, is to appoint  members  of      
   the Manufactured Housing Quality Assurance Board.
