Global Automakers testified in opposition to Maryland Senate Bills 566 and 1004, which both address various dealer franchise provisions. The State of Maryland has amended its franchise statute five times since 2009, including the previous three consecutive sessions. Global Automakers argued there is no need to amend the statute for a fourth consecutive year as there is no valid reason for auto dealers to resurrect their arguments from 2016. Global Automakers’s stated the proposed legislation serves only to protect the dealers' business interest and does not serve Maryland consumers.
