SACRAMENTO — Legislation by Assemblymember Dawn Addis (D-Morro Bay) that enshrines tenant protections for mobilehome residents was signed by Governor Gavin Newsom today. Once enacted, Assembly Bill 318 will extend the much-needed Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program for an additional three years.
"I'm proud that the Governor doubled down on California's commitment to a critical and popular program for residents who have encountered violations in their parks," Addis said. "AB 318 will allow this program to move forward so a vulnerable and often-ignored population of Californians keeps their right to seek justice."
In 2018, California established the Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program (MRLPP), a complaints and oversight process to safeguard vulnerable mobilehome homeowners. The newest updates to the program under AB 318 will increase the number of residents the state can assist, including seniors, working families, veterans, and other community members on fixed incomes.
AB 318 will take effect on January 1, 2024.
Dawn Addis was elected to the California State Assembly in 2022 to represent the coastal 30th Assembly District, which includes large portions of San Luis Obispo and Monterey Counties and the south-eastern area of Santa Cruz County.
