House passes bill to repeal NHTSA booklet

August 17, 2012
The U.S. House of Representatives passed  a resolution to repeal a requirement that dealers make available a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration booklet about insurance costs.
House Resolution 5859 was backed by the NADA, and it gained bipartisan support in the House. Under current law, auto dealers are required to provide upon request to prospective purchasers the NHTSA-produced booklet “Relative Collision Insurance Cost Information” or face penalties of $1,000 per violation.
The Senate continues its August recess until Sept. 13, when the chamber’s Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation will consider companion legislation.
The NADA will continue to identify and work to repeal this regulation and other outdated and burdensome mandates.
Dealers can offer suggestions regarding mandates they believe are no longer applicable to day-to-day operations by contacting the NADA Legislative Affairs office at or (202) 547-5500.
