Problematic Towing Bill Clunks

February 8, 2018

HB 1406 (Pogge) provides that a law-enforcement agency bear the costs of stolen vehicle towing recovery if a car owner retrieves his vehicle within five days. The law-enforcement agency must pay the full recovery cost to the towing company 30 days after receiving the payment request. The law-enforcement agency may then seek reimbursement from the state treasury for criminal charges.

VACo opposed the bill that would’ve added administrative and financial burden to localities. The bill was stricken from the House Transportation Committee’s Subcommittee #2 docket unanimously.
