  700.040.  Duties and powers of commission — manufactured housing fund created, purpose — rules, procedure. — 1.  The commission shall, through its own inspection service or through a public or private inspection service acting as its authorized representative, perform sufficient inspections of manufacturing and dealer premises and manufactured homes and modular units to ensure that the provisions of the code are being observed.  The commission shall approve any designation of a public or private inspection service as an authorized representative.  The commission shall establish a comprehensive inspection system, including a determination of the extent to which its own inspectors or authorized representatives are used.  The inspections may include examination of all books, records, performance and technical data of a manufacturer related to the subject matter of sections 700.010 to 700.115.

  2.  The commission shall establish reasonable fees for seals or inspection, or both, which are sufficient to cover all costs incurred in the administration of sections 700.010 to 700.115. Fees for inspections made by private inspection services may be paid directly to the inspection service.  The commission, upon issuing seals, registration certificates, and plan approvals, and conducting inspections provided for in sections 700.010 to 700.115, shall notify the director of revenue, who shall receive the fees and immediately deposit the same in the state treasury to the credit of a fund to be known as the "Manufactured Housing Fund".  All salaries and expenses for the implementation of sections 700.010 to 700.115 shall be appropriated and paid from such fund.

  3.  The provisions of section 33.080 to the contrary notwithstanding, money in this fund shall not be transferred and placed to the credit of general revenue until the amount in the fund at the end of the biennium exceeds two times the amount of the appropriation from the fund for the preceding fiscal year.  The amount, if any, in the fund which shall lapse is that amount in the fund which exceeds the appropriate multiple of the appropriations from the fund for the preceding year.

  4.  The commission may appoint such employees within its department as it may deem necessary for the administration of the provisions of sections 700.010 to 700.115.

  5.  The commission may issue and promulgate such rules and regulations as necessary to make effective the code and the provisions of sections 700.010 to 700.115.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is promulgated under the authority delegated in sections 700.010 to 700.115 shall become effective only if they have been promulgated pursuant to the provisions of chapter 536.  All rulemaking authority delegated prior to August 28, 1999, is of no force and effect; however, nothing in this section shall be interpreted to repeal or affect the validity of any rule filed or adopted prior to August 28, 1999, if it fully complied with the provisions of chapter 536.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 1999, shall be invalid and void.

  6.  The commission may remove seals from any manufactured home or modular unit made by any manufacturer in violation of the provisions of section 700.045.

  7.  Notwithstanding any other provisions of sections 700.010 to 700.115, the commission shall have the authority to enter into any contract or agreement necessary to comply with the statutes and regulations enforced by and under the authority of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development relating to manufactured homes and modular housing.

  8.  The commission may require manufacturers and dealers to file reports with the Secretary of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development as may be required under the provisions of the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C.  5401, et seq.).
