PMHA’s staff, along with our lobbyist firm, Milliron & Goodman Government Relations, LLC, put forth a lot of time and energy into tracking legislation that could affect the manufactured/modular housing industry, researching issues and devising plans of action to affect the laws governing our members.
PMHA’s Legislative Review will provide an overview of what bills are currently in process and what PMHA’s standing is on these bills.

Not only is tracking legislation and working with our legislators a time consuming process, it also takes money. Through a golf outing and other fundraisers, the Pennsylvania Manufactured Housing Political Action Committee (PMH PAC) works to raise funds to bring attention to the manufactured/modular housing industry on Capitol Hill but, that’s not enough.
There are several ways you can help – Maintain a Strong Voice on Capitol Hill.
Having a well-supported PAC is critical in our ability to address legislative issues and to build strong, professional relationship with key legislators. Become more involved legislatively and join our PMH PAC Legislative Team – we will guide you in building a relationship with your legislators and educating them on how current legislation affects you and the industry.”
This is an excellent way for members to create positive and long lasting relationships with their elected officials. Members of the PAC Legislative Team will be asked to contact their legislators when there are major issues that may affect the industry. They are also called upon to help raise funds (through activities and events) and PAC awareness and deliver PMH PAC contributions.
The PMH PAC was formed to promote the interests of the factory built housing industry. PMH PAC dollars are used to support candidates who believe and have demonstrated their beliefs in protecting, promoting and advancing the factory built housing industry. In addition to your time and efforts in supporting and assisting in the education of our legislators, we also need financial support to continue doing what we do best “protecting, promoting and advancing the factory built housing industry.”
