Hey all. Looks like the silly law was rescinded against taking cars to St John from St Thomas.
Governor Says No to New Rental Car Rule
By Lynda Lohr — April 18, 2012
A day-long brouhaha over Motor Vehicle Bureau Director Jerris T. Browne’s Tuesday edict prohibiting St. Thomas-based rental cars from going on the barge to St. John ended with Gov. John deJongh Jr. putting an indefinite hold on the measure.
“Effective tonight until further notice,” Government House spokesman Jean Greaux told the Source Wednesday evening.
In a prepared statement, Greaux said the Attorney General's Office will examine both existing local and federal law to determine whether this order is in conflict with the Commerce Clause.
Additionally the governor's directive calls on Browne to make an assessment of each St. John car rental agency and determine whether there is a need to adjust the car rental company's fleet quotas.
