Short description: 
RENTAL CAR-LIABLE-DISCLOSE-ADS                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the Renter's Financial Responsibility and Protection Act.      
   Provides that a company that rents vehicles for 30 days  or  less  may      
   offer a damage waiver to renters. Provides that the person to whom the      
   vehicle  is  rented  must sign the damage waiver at or before the time      
   the rental agreement is  executed  and  must  be  given  a  disclosure      
   notice.  Provides circumstances under which the damage waiver shall be      
   void.  Provides  for  advertising  and  mandatory charge requirements.      
   Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code and the Illinois  Insurance  Code  to      
   provide  that  proof  of  financial  responsibility  shall  be primary      
   coverage for the limits of liability, damage to property, or an injury      
   to or death of any person resulting from the operation of  the  rented      
   motor  vehicle  and  personal  injury  protection coverage. Amends the      
   Vehicle Code to provide that no person who rents a  private  passenger      
   motor vehicle to another in rental agreements of 30 days or less shall      
   hold  a driver liable for any damage or loss exceeding $1,000 (instead      
   of $200), with exceptions.  Deletes  provision  prohibiting  collision      
   damage  waivers.   Provides  that  no  rental  company shall require a      
   deposit or an advance charge against the credit card of a  renter  for      
   damages to a vehicle.  Effective immediately.
