The latest legislation was passsed unanimously in March by the Illinois state Senate and by the state House of Representatives — also unanimously — in May.
“We thank the thousands of Illinois customers who voiced their support for modernizing existing laws and commend Illinois Legislators and the Governor for taking action on behalf of local consumers,” Carvana government relations manager Will Dammann said in a statement Monday.
The bill was originally filed Feb. 9 in the state Senate by state Sen. Patrick Joyce, a Democrat whose district includes a small segment of south Chicago and the majority of Kankakee County. It was later sponsored in the state House by state Rep. Anthony DeLuca, a Democrat whose district includes the Chicago Heights suburb and part of Will County.
The legislation also stipulates dealers may deliver vehicles to a customer at their residence, if requested in writing. If a vehicle is delivered to an address other than the licensed dealer’s place of business, the date of sale is when the vehicle buyer signs an application for vehicle title, according to the legislation.
