2015 House Bill 4344

Senate Roll Call 291: Passed

To codify into law a comprehensive regulatory regime that is currently imposed on vehicle repair facilities through administrative regulations, including a state registration mandate. The bill also revises some details and definitions in these requirements. Among other things the bill would prohibit a repair shop from replacing a major part on a newer vehicle with one not made by the vehicle's maker, which has been criticized as protectionism benefitting the Big Three and other car makers.
