The adoption of SB 273 could not come at a worse time. An estimated 230,000 vehicles that were severely damaged in Superstorm Sandy are expected to flood salvage auto auctions and could wind up in the hands of unsuspecting buyers or even on Ohio's highways.
SB 273 will be considered at a hearing December 4 at 3:00 p.m. at which it could be brought for a vote. OATRA urges the public to contact their legislators immediately to urge them to vote NO on SB 273.
"I hope that the legislature will do the right thing and kill this bill," said Jim McKinney. "OATRA will do everything in its power to oppose SB 273 and we will continue advocating for sound public policy that will have a positive, not a destructive, impact on the people of Ohio."
