Florida S.B. 540, the companion bill to Florida H.B. 885, is set to be taken up in the Senate in the near future. Florida H.B. 885 passed the House with language that eliminates the current 80-percent threshold for a total-loss vehicle to receive a certificate of destruction, which would allow potentially unsafe vehicles to be branded as "repairable" and put back on the roads, according to the Automotive Service Association (ASA). The language in H.B. 885 could potentially be added to S.B. 540.

ASA says it opposes legislation that would eliminate the certificate of destruction for severely damaged vehicles and would oppose any possible related amendments to S.B. 540 that would include this language.

ASA is asking Florida repair shop owners to go to its legislative website at www.TakingTheHill.com to send a letter to their senators opposing any amendment to S.B. 540 that includes language to eliminate the current 80-percent threshold for a total-loss vehicle.
