Rep. Morrie Lanning says he sympathizes with mobile home park residents.

Lanning, R-Moorhead, said he understands what it's like to live in a home on land owned by someone else. When he first moved to Moorhead, he lived in what is now Greenwood Communities Mobile Home Park.

"My interest in this comes out of my experience," he said.

Lanning supports a bill making it easier for mobile home residents to pool resources and buy their park if it's for sale.

The third-term legislator also said he is preparing a legislative proposal that will provide tax benefits to mobile home park residents and owners.
