|HJR 189 (Regular Session, 1996)|
|House Joint Resolution 189 (1996) requested the establishment of a joint subcommittee to study, among other issues, the desirability and feasibility of amending Virginia's laws pertaining to motor vehicle dealers to allow unlicensed individuals to negotiate the purchase of motor vehicles from dealers on behalf of third parties. This report is in response to a letter received from The Honorable Thomas W. Moss, Jr., Speaker of the House of Delegates, dated April 29, 1996. In this report, DMV addresses one issue raised both by HJR 189 and by Speaker Moss in his letter, allowing unlicensed individuals to negotiate the purchase of motor vehicles from dealers on behalf of third parties.|
Presentations on both sides of this issue were given to both the Dealer Licensing Committee of the Board and the full Board. The Licensing Committee recommended to the Board, and the Board agreed, that the current statute protects consumers and that no changes should be made.
