A Senate bill requiring RV park managers in California to undergo training has been sent to the Senate Appropriations Committee Suspense File.
SB 869, introduced by Senator Connie Leyva on January 24 this year, seeks to obligate the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) to “require each person employed or acting under contract as an onsite manager or assistant manager, or otherwise acting in an onsite or offsite managerial capacity or role, on behalf of a mobile home park or recreational vehicle park to receive appropriate training of at least 18 hours during the initial year” by May 2024.
Under the bill, park managers in the state would also be required to complete follow-up training each year on rules and regulations for the park, among other matters. Upon completing the training and passing the examination, HCD would issue a certificate of completion and establish a process for renewing the certificate.
If the bill is approved, the training could be online or offered in other formats. HCD could also consult with the Department of Consumer Affairs in offering the training.
CampCalNOW has been in talks with Senator Leyva’s office regarding the bill, and in a recent email to its members, the association announced that the Senate bill has been shelved.
“We are happy to report that at this time, SB 869 has been sent to Senate Appropriations Committee Suspense File,” the association shared.
“We will be keeping an eye on the state of the bill to ensure it remains shelved, and we are ready to jump back into action should anything change,” it added.
