Current law requires motor vehicle dealers, motor vehicle salespersons, motor vehicle buyer agents, wholesale motor vehicle auction dealers, business disposers, used motor vehicle dealers, wholesalers, used powersports vehicle dealers, powersports vehicle dealers, and powersports salespersons (dealers) to have bonds to compensate people for fraud or a violation of the motor vehicle dealer statutes if the violation is designated as recoverable by the motor vehicle dealer board. Sections 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the bill require the violation to be related to fraud in order for a person to recover from the bond. Sections 4 and 7 authorize a person to recover from a bond in an action if the board
makes a finding in a hearing issues a final agency order with a finding that a dealer committed fraud.
