Public Act 290 of 2014

  1. Introduced by Sen. Mike Nofs (R) on April 29, 2014, to revise process for updating vehicle loan “security interests” on vehicle titles, so as to accommodate the process proposed by Senate Bill 918 for replacing the current paper-based system with an all-electronic one. Among other things the bill would eliminate a requirement that the Secretary of State must issue a title to the owner of a vehicle, if the title were subject to a security interest (loan).
