The Forty-Second Congress of the United States passed the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Act in 1974; however, the law became effective on June 15, 1976. This act ensured that all mobile homes would be built according to tough national standards. The name mobile homes was officially changed to manufactured homes in 1980.
