According to The Register-Guard, current laws in Oregon allow residents to rent out their vehicles to other people, but if the renter gets into an accident, the owner's insurance rates increase.
House Bill 3149 states that car owners can rent their vehicles through a car sharing service and won't have to worry about their insurance rates rising. The bill passed the Oregon Senate on Monday with a 25-3 vote.
Under the bill, car sharing services must have at least three times the required minimum insurance for vehicles in Oregon. It also stops insurance companies from dropping clients who decide to participate in a car sharing program.
HB 3149 is going back to the House for approval of some amendments that were made in the Senate, according to The Register-Guard.
