Bill Caption

Relating to persons engaged in the leasing of motor vehicles.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 3163 would revise the definition of a “vehicle lessor” to mean a person who, as the lessor, leases or offers to lease a motor vehicle to another person. Subsequently, a licensed vehicle lease facilitator may sign a vehicle lease agreement as a vehicle lessor before the vehicle lease is assigned, transferred, or conveyed to an ultimate lessor. This would allow a person who does not own a vehicle to be a vehicle lessor. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

HB 3163 does not appear to have a connection to our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
