Oklahoma IADA Legislative and Dealer Support Activities
Member dues support a legislative liaison who monitors all pieces of state legislation potentially impacting the industry. In 2016 alone, over 4,000 pieces of legislation were submitted. In any given year, the OIADA liaison and staff actively monitor approximately 30 pieces of legislation. Member dues also support staff representation before the Used Motor Vehicle & Parts Commission. Specific actions by OIADA in recent years include:
•Opposed legislation merging the UMV&PC with the MVPC and placing dealers under the oversight of a board with five lay persons and only one industry representative.
•Orchestrated activity to stop the UMV&PC from requiring used dealers to disclose vehicle recall status.
•Against significant opposition from the wrecker industry, sponsored and succeeded in passing extensive Title 42 reform.
•Worked with sponsors of criminal staling legislation to exempt dealers' legitimate use of GPS devices from the proposed definition of "following" as it related to stalking. the bill was ultimately defeated.
•Stopped legislation requiring used dealer to provide extensive disclosure of previous vehicle frame and /or body damage and subjected them to severe penalties (including being deemed guilty of fraud and requiring refund of all monies) for failure to do so.
•Stopped efforts that would have caused dealers to pay approximately $10 for temporary tags.
•Defeated an effort to require dealers to license every vehicle on their lots.
•Stopped legislation requiring dealers to provide an annual report of sales to the OTC.
