  • Legislative Alert: AAMVA Opposes RECALL Act

    Legislative Alerts buttonEarlier this month AAMVA issued a legislative alert concerning the Markey/Blumenthal RECALL Act (S617) which mandates state motor vehicle agencies notify owners of any outstanding vehicle safety recalls at the time of registration; requires owners complete all safety recall work prior to registration renewal; and withholds federal highway funds from any state that fails to comply. On March 25, 2015, AAMVA announced a policy position in opposition of the RECALL Act and is pleased to be joined by the Governor's Highway Safety Association (GHSA) in opposition. AAMVA is working collaboratively with the bill's sponsors and will keep the membership apprised of its status.

In addition to presenting ways to deter and detect fraud, the document investigates different types of fraud and the psychology of those who seek to perpetrate fraud. It also examines the impact fraud can have on national security and highway safety as well as the personal impact identity theft can have on the customers DMVs serve.

    The eOdometer Task Force Report captures considerations that should be taken when shifting from a paper odometer disclosure process to an electronic odometer (e-odometer) disclosure process. Flexibility was a key factor in developing the report so that jurisdictions can implement an electronic process within budgetary constraints. The specific actions within the process and the importance of authenticating the disclosure were also taken into consideration.
