Vehicle Technology---The American Alliance for Vehicle Owners’ Rights (AAVOR), of which ACRA is a leading member, filed a statement May 18 at the House Energy & Commerce Committee hearing on advanced vehicle technology that focused on urging Congress to address vehicle data access legislation that protects the rights of vehicle owners to control and access the data from the vehicles they own.


State Developments


Activities in most state legislatures are over for 2021. ACRA remains engaged in a number of issues across the country.


Hawaii has been particularly challenging for the industry this year. Proposals to limit the number of rental cars in each county of the state, as well as a fleet electrification mandate, died in the closing hours of that state’s legislative session. The issues could be raised again in 2022.


California is considering ACRA-supported legislation to remove that state’s cap on LDW charges. The bill has passed the California Assembly and is waiting for consideration by the California Senate.


New York has enacted a new “Healthy Terminals” law which requires employers at New York airports to pay their covered employees the “prevailing wage,” including benefits, effective Sept. 1.
