Identical calibration consumer protection bills have been introduced in the Maryland General Assembly. The bills require glass shops to inform customers if a recalibration is needed, provide a statement that the work will meet or exceed original equipment manufacturer specifications and inform the customer if not performed or successfully completed. Under the bills, glass shops are not limited to motor vehicle glass, tooling, equipment, or repair procedures provided by the vehicle manufacturer. A hearing on HB 920 was held on March 1. AGSC testified in support of the bill but also said that it wanted the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration to update the state Replacement Glass Safety Standard to reflect the recent changes to the ANSI/AGSC/AGRSS Standard. SB 793 is being heard in the Senate Finance Committee on March 8. The text of the bills can be found HERE.
