House Committee Approves Auto Safety Bill

This week, pushed on by the recent Toyota recalls and runaway acceleration issues, the House Energy and Commerce Committee approved a new auto safety bill that would impose stricter standards on car makers. The bill now goes to the full House, where it could pass before the end of the year.

The vote, as all votes these days, was along party lines. Democrats were pushing the increased safety provisions for car buyers while Republicans were complaining about additional financial burdens on auto manufacturers to meet the new safety standards. Those standards are specifically to prevent unintended acceleration in vehicles.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
