A bill approved today in the House Commerce Committee would require a dealer to tell you if your new car was part of a recall. 

Dealers are currently obligated to fix the recall problems before a vehicle is sold, but there is nothing requiring them to give that information to a buyer. 

Rep. Richard Johnson, D-Marksville, says his "Tell Before You Sell" bill protects consumers and dealers.  He says dealers can't be accused of misleading the public if the recall information is part of their purchase agreement.
