Federal legislation proposed to require rental cars receive recall repairs
Tuesday, May 31, 2011
Associated Press: “U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York said he will introduce a bill to stop car rental agencies from renting automobiles that are under recalls for problems that aren’t yet fixed,” according to an AP report. “Rental car agencies appear more interested in reaping profit by keeping recalled vehicles on the road then they do with ensuring the safety of the individuals and families who are driving their cars,” Schumer said. Similar legislation has already been proposed in California.
