On Wednesday, President Obama signed H.R. 3471, the Veterans Safety Mobility Act. This legislation creates new safety standards for companies that are providing vehicles and modifications for disabled veterans through the VA.
There was an amendment offered by Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) which ensured that the certification process was fair and allows independent dealers to continue doing home installations and deliveries to provide the best care to our nation’s veterans. There was a strong coalition of independent dealers, groups, and associations that worked together to advocate for important improvements to this legislation. Many thanks goes to the members that have been reaching out to their members of Congress to gain support of this legislation!
