Priority legislation for 2016
Though there are many issues facing dealers today, the FIADA Board of Directors has chosen to focus on lienholder rights for 2016. Last legislative session we accomplished much by having the curbstoning fine increased from $100 to $500. The legislative agenda for this session includes revising the language for mechanics liens. Through the support of the Motor Vehicle Repair Board and the Florida Department of Agriculture the FIADA is working to update FS 713.585 to allow for lienholders to post a bond. Read more here.
