The Unfinished Business analysis addressing the June 22, 1995 amended version of Senate Bill 310 that was produced by the Office of Senate Floor Analyses provides the following digest of the bill:
This bill makes changes in the law regulating mobilehome park conversion to resident ownership.
Assembly Amendments make numerous substantive and technical
changes; however, the intent remains the same. The substantive changes include clarification relating to (1) mitigation of economic displacement requirements, (2) resident-owned corporate parks, and (3) disclosure requirements for resident-owned subdivided parks.
