The director shall designate wind pressure zones in which the rules for tiedown of manufactured dwellings shall apply.
Except as provided in ORS 446.395 (License required), an installer is not required to be licensed by the director to connect utilities from utility terminations provided on a lot to manufactured dwellings. [1975 c.546 §3; 1989 c.648 §23; 1991 c.226 §7; 1993 c.744 §55]
