Total-loss disclosure bills need more support in House, Senate

November 17, 2010

Companion bills to ensure that the VINs of wrecked, flooded or stolen vehicles are made publicly available before the cars are resold are under consideration in the U.S. House and Senate, but enlisting more lawmakers as co-sponsors of the bills would make the legislation more formidable.


Dealers are encouraged to contact their senators and representatives to encourage their support of Senate Bill 545 and House Resolution 1029. The bills were introduced and first sponsored by Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla), respectively.
