Senator Rubio’s Bill Improving the Health and Safety of Mobile Home Park Residents Signed by Governor Newsom

September 28, 2022

SACRAMENTO, CA – Governor Gavin Newsom today signed a bill by Senator Susan Rubio (D-Baldwin Park) that will help improve the health and safety of mobile home park residents.

Senate Bill 1307 will help educate local governments about an existing process in state law that allows them to assume responsibility for conducting inspections and enforcing health and safety laws at mobile home parks located within their jurisdiction. The bill requires the California Department of Housing and Community Development to increase awareness of this process by posting a clear and prominent explanation on its website in multiple languages and sending annual notices to local governments.

“I have met with many mobile home park residents who have had their homes and lives destroyed because of safety code violations that went unaddressed for years,” said Senator Rubio. “Long gaps between inspection visits at mobile home parks are unacceptable and can have fatal consequences. I thank Governor Newsom for agreeing with me on this important issue. This legislation will save lives.”

Since joining the State Senate, Sen. Rubio has prioritized addressing the state’s affordable housing shortage and homelessness crisis. A member of the Senate Housing Production Working Group, she has authored several affordable housing bills over the past two years. In 2022, Sen. Rubio authored Senate Bill 914: the Homeless Equity for Left Behind Populations (HELP) Act, and Senate Resolution 61 declaring the month of March 2022 as Unaccompanied Women Experiencing Homelessness Awareness Month in California.

In 2019, Sen. Rubio authored SB 751 to create the San Gabriel Valley Regional Housing Trust for local communities to collaborate regionally and support affordable housing projects and homeless shelter programs.
