SACRAMENTO, Calif. (May 30, 2014) — The California Assembly Appropriations Committee passed two tire-related bills May 23 as part of its pending Suspense File, according to the May 28 issue of California Tire Bulletin.

The bills now go to the full assembly for a hearing.

A.B. 1665 would authorize the California Bureau of Automotive Repair to regulate businesses that change and repair tires as automotive repair dealers. It also requires that automotive repair dealers be capable of servicing and repairing tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), thus putting California into compliance with federal tire safety regulations.

Les Schwab Tire Centers Inc. and the California Tire Dealers Association (CTDA) are co-sponsoring A.B. 1665, according to California Tire Bulletin.

A.B. 2656 would extend by five years the requirement that the California Department of Transportation use asphalt paving materials that are at least 50 percent rubberized asphalt concrete, from Jan. 1, 2015 to Jan. 1, 2020.

The bill also would require the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery to prioritize the use of tire-derived products in relevant public works projects in disadvantaged communities.

California Tire Bulletin is published by Terry Leveille, president of Sacramento-based TL Associates and legislative representative of the CTDA.
