ATLANTA — Car booting would be state-sanctioned and state-licensed under a bill filed by Rep. Alan Powell, the chairman of the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee.
House Bill 774 would force a booter to get a $1,000 state license, would cap fees at $85 dollars and give the state full control over regulation.
Booters say it would standardize the industry.
"Quite frankly, if you own a piece of property, you should be able to boot a car that's parked there illegally," lobbyist John Haliburton told Channel 2’s consumer investigator Jim Strickland at a committee hearing on the bill Monday.
