Bill Would Restrict Unsafe Used Tires


Before leaving the Statehouse for summer recess, the General Assembly introduced legislation to prevent the installation of unsafe used tires on cars.  The legislation revises the state’s deceptive sales practices statute by defining an unsafe used tire and prohibiting their installation. The OMA will work with tire manufacturers to support passage of HB 574 (sponsors Robert Sprague (R-Findlay) and Anthony DeVitis (R-Akron)) and SB 336 (sponsors Cliff Hite (R-Findlay) and Frank LaRose (R-Akron)) in the fall when the House and Senate return.
