   New Act                                                                     

        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, 2001, 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  July  1,  2001  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 immediately.      
          HOME RULE NOTE (Department of Commerce and Community Affairs)        
          HB 681 contains language stating its provisions are an exclu-        
          sive State power or function which shall not be exercised con-       
          currently by any unit of local government to which the bill          
          applies except Chicago. Therefore, in the opinion of DCCA,           
          HB 681 preempts home rule authority.                                 
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Requires that a manufactured home installed  after  December  31,      
   2001  be  installed  under  the  supervision (instead of direct onsite      
   supervision) of a licensed installer.  In  provisions  concerning  the      
   Department  of  Public Health's service as a liaison between the State      
   and  certain  groups  interested  in  manufactured  housing,  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 the members of the Manufactured Housing  Quality      
   Assurance Board.                                                            
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Public Health)                            
          The Department anticipates approximately $190,000 in annual          
          revenue to be generated by this legislation; and a comparable        
          amount to be spent on implementation of the Act.                     
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Provides that all manufactured homes installed after December 31,      
   2001 must be installed under  the  "onsite"  supervision  (instead  of      
   merely  under the supervision) of a licensed installer.  Provides that      
   an installer who has completed certain training before January 1, 2002      
   (instead of July 1, 2001)  is  not  required  to  complete  any  other      
   training.   Changes the bill's effective date to January 1, 2002.
