House Committee on Small Business Holds Hearing on Impact of DOE Regulations on Job Creators

On November 8, the House Committee on Small Business held a hearing titled, “Burdensome Regulations: Examining the Effects of Department of Energy Regulations on America’s Job Creators.” The goal of this hearing was to examine the impacts of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) burdensome regulations and the economic pressures they place on both small businesses and American consumers.

In written testimony, MHI told the Committee that the DOE manufactured home energy standards are not just burdensome and unnecessary – they also contain a number of critical flaws in their design and implementation. MHI highlighted the potential negative impacts of proposed DOE regulations on the manufactured housing industry, including increased home prices, reduced production of attainable homes, and job losses across the manufactured housing industry.
