Calif. Gov. Vetoes Bill to Protect Consumers from Fraud

Order Reprints

Oct. 6, 2016—Last week, California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a legislation that would give the Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) the ability to issue a wider-range of fines to shops that cheat customers, according to a report by NBC Bay Area.

As it stands now, BAR has limited power to actually enforce consumer protection, according to the report.

Earlier in the summer, the legislature passed a reform bill that would allow the agency the power to do this while also requiring more transparency in the bureau. However, Brown vetoed the legislation because similar policies exist, NBC Bay Area reports.
