Mother Pushes for New Federal Law for Rental Car Companies

In a 1,500-word article, the Los Angeles Times reports on how Cally Houck, whose daughters were killed due to a faulty power steering hose in an Enterprise rental car, was able to petition Congress to introduce a bill to prohibit car rental companies from renting out recalled vehicles to the public without repairs. The bill was first introduced in 2011, but it never had a hearing. It was filed again each year, “gaining allies and converting opponents.” In the spring of 2015, House sponsor Rep. Lois Capps got a provision included in $305 billion, five-year highway funding bill. While GOP Rep. Roger Williams, who owns a car dealership in Texas, added an amendment to exempt car dealers’ rentals, both houses of Congress reached a compromise, and Capps and Sen. Barbara Boxer “each said removing the exemption in future law is a priority.”

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...)
