SB 867 - This act modifies the required distance from an unaffiliated new motor vehicle dealership for a franchisor to own a minority interest in an entity that owns a motor vehicle dealership of the same line-make. This act also modifies the warranty reimbursement for motor vehicle franchises when dealing with trucks licensed at a gross weight of eighteen thousand pounds or more. This act creates a different scheme for determining reasonable compensation for warranty services so that franchisees performing warranty services for trucks licensed at a gross weight of eighteen thousand pounds or more are compensated at their full nonwarranty service rate. This act also requires compensation under the same scheme when a franchisor provides parts to a franchisee for warranty services, less the cost of the provided parts.
This act is similar to HB 1634 (2014).
