Library of Congress Summary
The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
8/1/2011--Reported to House without amendment.
(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced.
The summary has been expanded because action occurred on the measure.) CJ's Home Protection Act of 2011 - Requires the consensus committee established under the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974, within 90 days of enactment of this Act, to develop and submit to the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) proposed federal manufactured home construction and safety standards.
Requires the Secretary to issue a final order promulgating the standard within 90 days after receiving the proposal.
Amends the Act to require such standards to require each manufactured home delivered for sale to be supplied with a weather radio:
(1) capable of broadcasting emergency information relating to local weather conditions,
(2) equipped with a tone alarm and Specific Alert Message Encoding (SAME) technology, and
(3) compliant with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Standard 2009-A Performance Specification for Public Alert Receivers (or its current revision).
Exempts any aspect of the function, operation, performance, capabilities, or utilization of such weather radio or any related instructions from certain requirements regarding:
(1) noncompliance with standards or defective nature of manufactured homes,
(2) notification and correction of defects by such manufacturers, or
(3) the Secretary's regulations pursuant to the authority under such Act. Requires the Secretary to study whether to condition the applicability of the requirement to supply weather radios in manufactured homes on the geographic location at which a manufactured home is placed, but only to the extent that such requirement applies to new manufactured homes and new site-built homes.
House Republican Conference Summary
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
No summary available.
House Democratic Caucus Summary
The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.
So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.
We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
