Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Mobile Home Park Act.

Provides that the licensee has 30 days after receipt of the written notice to correct the violation or make the required modification or repair. Provides that the new provisions do not apply to any mobile home park located within a home rule county if the home rule county actively regulates mobile home parks. Provides that civil penalties in the amount of $500 per day, per violation shall be assessed for non-compliance with the written notice of violation issued by a municipal fire department or fire protection district. Provides that an additional civil penalty of $500 per day of violation shall be assessed against a licensee who knowingly rents or offers for rent a mobile home or mobile home site without taking appropriate corrective action to remedy a notice of violation issued by a municipal fire department or fire protection district. Provides that the Department shall deposit all fees and fines collected under the Act into the Facility Licensing Fund. Provides that moneys in the Fund, subject to appropriation, shall be used for the enforcement of the Act.
