The FTC’s proposal would impose a number of new substantive and disclosure requirements on motor vehicle dealers in connection with the car buying or leasing process.  The topics we cover include: the FTC’s statutory authority for the proposal and the proposal’s coverage (including buy-here-pay-here dealers); the specific new requirements the proposal would impose; how the proposal interacts with existing federal and state laws; the proposal’s impact on auto finance companies; potential remedies for violations; and timing of next rulemaking steps.

Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel, hosts the conversation.
