In addition, it allows a salvage pool that is in possession of a vehicle that was brought to the salvage pool at the direction of an insurance company to apply for a salvage title if the insurance company has denied coverage and the vehicle is abandoned at the salvage pool facility by the vehicle owner or lienholder.
Passed the Senate.
