Paving the Way to Wisconsin's "Lemon Law" Repeal

AB 200/AB 182:  Solid red sponsorship

Wisconsin Association for Justice news release, WMC – Bad for Small Business.  In Support of the Repeal of Wisconsin’s Lemon Law.

Excerpt:    The Assembly Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on May 29th on proposed changes to Wisconsin’s current “Lemon Law.” The changes are heavily supported by Wisconsin Manufacturers Commerce (WMC) and Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers which represent large (out‐of‐state and foreign) vehicle manufacturers, i.e.,General Motors Corporation, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler Group LLC, BMW Group,Jaguar Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes‐Benz USA, Mitsubishi Motors, Porsche, Toyota, Volkswagen Group of America and Volvo Cars North America. 

Assembly Bill 200 (AB‐200) and Senate Bill 182 (SB‐182) would repeal Wisconsin’s current “Lemon Law,” a law that was originally created to give small businesses and consumers a way to protect themselves against vehicle manufacturers when the commercial or passenger vehicle they purchased is defective and turns out to be a “lemon.” The bill creates a special provision for commercial vehicles by extending the time for a manufacturer respond from 30 days to 120 days.
