STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

The Department of Finance’s Fleet Program is a voluntary program that assists companies with one or more commercial vehicles in obtaining hearings for outstanding parking violation summonses.  Similarly, the Department’s Car Rental Program is a voluntary program that assists vehicle rental companies in managing parking summonses.  Under these programs, when companies receive summonses for their vehicles, they may be represented at hearings in the Department’s Commercial Adjudications Unit (CAU) by their employees or by brokers.

To deter misconduct by representatives who appear at PVB hearings, this proposed rule authorizes DOF to suspend brokers, brokerage companies and employees of companies that participate in the Fleet Program from appearing before the PVB for any period up to life, after a finding that the representative violated one or more Department representative conduct rules.  Examples of rule infractions include attempting to coerce or influence Administrative Law Judges (“ALJs”) and submitting fraudulent evidence to ALJs at PVB hearings.

This proposed rule also adds a new definition relating to brokerage companies as this proposed rule extends liability separately to brokerage companies.
