GSMOL is Neutral

AB 978 – Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva

Due to GSMOL’s advocacy efforts, the bill has been been AMENDED. As a result, GSMOL has shifted its position from oppose to neutral and we are now monitoring the bill.

Status:  Passed by the Assembly Housing Committee, May 3

Assembly Bill 978 (Sharon Quirk-Silva) proposes to extend the same percentages and numbers for mobilehome space rent as applied to apartment renters, which increases rents for mobilehomes.  With the amendments, the bill now applies only to situations in which a mobilehome park is split between two municipalities.
