House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Raises a motor vehicle renter's maximum liability for actual and reasonable costs incurred by the loss due to theft of the rental motor vehicle up to its fair market value immediately before the loss occurred using a commonly and commercially accepted method to establish a fair market value (rather than $2,000); deletes provisions relating to a failure to exercise ordinary care. Provides that if the estimate of repair exceeds $3,500, then, prior to any repairs being initiated, the insurer of the renter or the renter shall be allowed 72 hours from the date of notice to inspect the damaged vehicle and obtain another estimate of repair on the damaged vehicle. Effective July 1, 2008.
