Bill To Eliminate Unnecessary Dealership Paperwork Awaiting President Obama’s Signature

May 30, 2014

A bill that repeals an unnecessary paperwork burden on auto dealerships, is awaiting President Obama’s signature. The legislation, backed by the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), recently passed the U.S. Senate by unanimous consent and eliminates a 1977 federal mandate requiring auto dealers to verify that new vehicles are compliant with the Clean Air Act.All new cars and light trucks delivered to dealerships from the factory already come with documentation that the vehicles conform to federal emission laws, so requiring dealerships to recertify the vehicle was redundant and unnecessary.Additionally, new vehicle owners can find documentation of Clean Air Act compliance under the hood of the vehicle, on the Internet, or in the owner’s manual and supplements, making additional government paperwork provided by the dealer unnecessary.
