House Democrats Introduce Bill Requiring NHTSA to Update Safety Standards for Car Front Seatbacks

CBS News reports online that three House Democrats are “moving to force the government to raise the safety standards governing car front seatbacks, which may collapse during rear-end collisions and injure or kill passengers in the back seat.” Reps. Kathleen Rice (D-NY), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Diana DeGette (D-CO) “introduced the Modernizing Seat Back Safety Act in the House Tuesday.” The bill would require NHTSA “to update its decades-old strength standard for vehicle seats to address failures during rear-end collisions within two years.” CBS News adds that the bill introduced in the House Tuesday is the “companion bill to the one introduced by Senators Ed Markey and Richard Blumenthal that was advanced by a Senate committee this month and has been folded into the Senate’s $78 Billion Surface Transportation Investment Act.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

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...)
