TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A change has been made to help boost safety in mobile homes, a crucial source of affordable housing in the Tucson area.

The Arizona Daily Star reports the Pima County Board of Supervisors approved a zoning-code amendment requiring proof of rehabilitation for mobile homes built before 1976, the year federal construction standards for mobile homes were established.

Mobile home owners must provide that proof to Pima County Building and Site Development before importing trailers into the county, relocating them within the county or connecting them to utilities.

The new regulation, which takes effect in a month, will expand an already state statute to cover mobile homes that are moved onto private property, as well as trailers moved between parks.
