Texas Administrative Code
|TITLE 16||ECONOMIC REGULATION|
|PART 4||TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING AND REGULATION|
|CHAPTER 70||INDUSTRIALIZED HOUSING AND BUILDINGS|
The 69th Legislature, 1985, has found and determined that there is great need to provide safe, durable code-constructed housing and buildings and to encourage the economics realized through mass production and assembly line building techniques in order to produce and provide more affordable dwellings and buildings. The 69th Legislature has also found and determined that existing statutes and regulations prior to September 1, 1985, are not adequate to coordinate properly the interests of both the state and local political subdivisions including home rule cities. In recognition of its findings, and in order to promote the public health, safety, and welfare, the 69th Legislature enacted House Bill 1213 mandating the regulation of industrialized housing and buildings and provided that such Act shall be liberally construed and applied to encourage innovative building and construction techniques (Chapter 84, 69th Legislature, 1985, Vernon's Law Service, 1985, page 332).
