The bill requires the department of regulatory agencies
(department) to conduct a sunset review of the public utilities
commission's (commission) regulation of towing carriers in 2023 and
moves up the department's sunset review of the towing task force (task
force) from 2024 to 2023. As part of its sunset review of the
commission's regulation of towing carriers, the department is required to

review complaints against towing carriers; whether the towing industry
and consumers would benefit from dispute resolution of complaints; the
reasonableness of rates for recovery, towing, and storage fees; and the
reasonableness of towing contracts that towing companies enter into with
property owners.
The composition of the task force is changed to replace a member
who represents towing carriers but is not a representative of a towing
association with a member who represents mobile home owners and to
replace a member who represents an association of motor carriers with a
member who represents common interest community unit owners. The
bill adds 2 members to the task force to represent communities that might
be disproportionately affected by nonconsensual towing, such as
communities of color, immigrant communities, elderly communities, and
rural communities.
