HB 612 -- Merchandising Practices
This bill adds motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and their implements, machinery, attachments and repair parts to the statutes relating to machinery inventory and the repurchase on termination of a dealership. Manufacturers cannot terminate, cancel, or fail to renew a dealership agreement or change the competitive circumstances of a dealership without good cause. The bill spells out what circumstances constitute good cause. Manufacturers must give a 90 day notice of termination, cancellation, or nonrenewal of a dealership agreement. The notice must also provide the dealer a 60 day period in which to cure any claims deficiency. The bill also establishes manufacturer prohibitions against dealers.
