Title 49--PROFESSIONAL AND VOCATIONAL STANDARDS
STATE BOARD OF VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS, DEALERS AND SALESPERSONS
[49 PA. CODE CH. 19]
[34 Pa.B. 3410]
The State Board of Vehicle Manufacturers, Dealers and Salespersons (Board) amends § 19.18 (relating to established place of business for dealers).
Description and Need for Final-Form Rulemaking
Section 19.18(3)(i) requires licensed dealers to maintain a display area large enough to display five vehicles of the type normally sold at that dealership. This final-form rulemaking exempts licensed vehicle dealers who sell only new firefighting or other emergency services vehicles from the minimum display area requirement of § 19.18(3)(i).
Summary of Comments and Responses to Proposed Rulemaking
The Board published notice of proposed rulemaking at 33 Pa.B. 4687 (September 20, 2003) with a 30-day public comment period. The Board did not receive any comments from the public. The Board did not receive comments from the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC), the House Professional Licensure Committee or the Senate Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee as part of their review of proposed rulemaking under the Regulatory Review Act (71 P. S. §§ 745.1--745.12).
Fiscal Impact and Paperwork Requirements
The final-form rulemaking will have no adverse fiscal impact on the Commonwealth or its political subdivisions and will impose no additional paperwork requirements upon the Commonwealth, political subdivisions or the private sector.
The final-form rulemaking will become effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
The rulemaking is promulgated under section 4(a)(9) of the Board of Vehicles Act (63 P. S. § 818.4(a)(9)).
Under section 5(a) of the Regulatory Review Act (71 P. S. § 745.5(a)), on September 9, 2003, the Board submitted a copy of the notice of proposed rulemaking, published at 33 Pa.B. 4687, to IRRC and the Chairpersons of the House Professional Licensure Committee and the Senate Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee for review and comment.
Under section 5(c) of the Regulatory Review Act, IRRC and the Committees were provided with copies of the comments received during the public comment period, as well as other documents when requested. In preparing the final-form rulemaking, the Department has considered all comments from IRRC, the House and Senate Committees and the public.
Under section 5.1(j.2) of the Regulatory Review Act (71 P. S. § 745.5a(j.2)), on May 11, 2004, the final-form rulemaking was approved by the House and Senate Committees. Under section 5(g) of the Regulatory Review Act, the amendment was deemed approved by IRRC, effective May 26, 2004.
