Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday signed an executive order removing barriers to mobile home construction and placement in an effort to help residents displaced by the recent Southern California mudslides and wildfires.
The order suspends for three months all regulations included in the state's laws governing mobile and manufactured homes.
Brown wrote the order would help "quickly provide housing for those displaced by the wildfires and subsequent mud and debris flows."
It will, for example, halt local zoning laws that could prevent a family from living on their destroyed property in a temporary trailer.
Brown signed a second executive order to extend for six months a ban on price gouging in communities affected by October wildfires in Northern California.
