COLUMBUS – State Rep. Brennan (D-Parma) today announced the passage of his first bill out of the Ohio House of Representatives. House Bill (HB) 195, which will create an adaptive mobility car dealer license, passed unanimously on December 6th and was a bipartisan collaboration with his Republican colleague Rep. Steve Demetriou (R-Bainbridge Township).

"Since coming to the Statehouse in January, I have worked hard to build relationships with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Our bill is proof that bipartisanship is still alive and that, when we work together, Ohioans benefit,” said Rep. Brennan.

Currently, car dealers who retrofit vehicles for the disabled community are operating in a gray area under Ohio law. HB 195 will clear up this area of the law to the benefit of legitimate car dealers and those they serve.   

Reps. Brennan and Demetriou believe that their bill will lead to more adaptive dealers entering the market and result in better quality, lower prices, more choices, and further innovations in the adaptive automobile space. 

“Our bill will benefit disabled Ohioans in many ways, including giving them peace of mind that the vehicles they purchase are safe and reliable and that the vehicle warranties will be honored,” Brennan added

The bill has been sent to the Ohio Senate for consideration. Should it pass there, it will be sent to Governor DeWine for his signature.
