AEM represents manufacturers’ interest when legislation is introduced that changes the balance between dealers and manufacturers.


AEM expects a number of states to introduce legislation in 2016 that has carried over from previous sessions or will be newly introduced. Termination, warranty, buy back are often the main issues identified.

Position and Activities

AEM’s works diligently to avoid costly legislative battles and seeks to meet with dealers directly by company or with their representatives to identify the problems and seek solutions outside a legislative fix. If no agreement can be reached, AEM and its member companies will engage local lobbyists to assist in our efforts against the bill.
