Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill eliminates buyer identification (BID) cards and all associated
requirements and restrictions specific to the purchase of motor vehicles from a motor
vehicle salvage pool, imposes record-keeping requirements on salvage pools, and
changes the definition of “junk vehicle.”
Under current law, a person may not purchase or bid on a motor vehicle from
a motor vehicle salvage pool unless the person holds a valid BID card issued by the
Department of Transportation, the person displays the BID card to the salvage pool,
and the person includes the BID card number on any bid submitted to the salvage
pool. A motor vehicle salvage pool sells or distributes damaged motor vehicles at
wholesale, generally by auction. BID cards are available only to motor vehicle
dealers, wholesalers, and salvage dealers licensed in this state or another state and

to their employees. BID cards must contain the full name, business and residence
address, and a brief description of the card holder, as well as the card holder's BID
number. The motor vehicle salvage pool may not accept a bid or complete a sales
transaction unless the bidder satisfies the foregoing requirements. The motor
vehicle salvage pool must also establish and maintain, in compliance with standards
established by DOT, a record of each motor vehicle sold. DOT may also inspect the
books and records of BID card holders, at the cost of the card holder. This bill
eliminates BID cards and all associated requirements and restrictions specific to the
purchase of motor vehicles from a salvage pool.
This bill also requires a motor vehicle salvage pool to maintain an electronic
record for each junk vehicle or salvage vehicle sold by or purchased from the pool.
The record must include all of the following: 1) the year, make, model, and vehicle
identification number of the vehicle; 2) the name and address of the seller and buyer
and each bidder; and 3) a copy of the buyer's current motor vehicle operator's license
or other current, government-issued photographic identification. A motor vehicle
salvage pool must upon prior written notice make these records available to DOT or
a law enforcement agency.
Under current law, a “junk vehicle" is defined as a vehicle that is incapable of
highway operation and has no resale value except as a source of parts or scrap or that
an insurance company has taken possession of or title to because the cost of repairing
the vehicle exceeds its value. This bill changes the definition of “junk vehicle" to
mean a vehicle that has no resale value except as a source of parts or scrap and that
has been designated by the owner as a source of parts or scrap.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
