LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A bill that would create tougher rules around inspections of Michigan mobile homes is on its way to Gov. Rick Snyder for consideration.

The House gave it final approval Tuesday. It had nearly unanimous support through the House and Senate.

The bill is similar to one introduced last session that died during the lame duck period at the end of the year. The legislation from Democratic Rep. Andy Schor of Lansing was initially proposed in response to the condemnation of the Life O’Riley Mobile Home Park in his district.

Residents were forced to move out from the park due to poor sanitation.

The bill would clarify state and local roles in the inspection process and increase fines for violating health or safety standards, among other things.
