Description

Virginia Petroleum Products Franchise Act; franchises in Planning District 8. Exempts a third party that purchases a motor fuel franchise located in Planning District 8 from the divorcement requirement if the acquiring third party, its successors, assigns, affiliates, and subsidiaries are not refiners. The divorcement requirement prohibits a refiner of petroleum products from operating a retail motor fuel outlet within one and one-half miles of a retail outlet operated by a franchised dealer. The existing provision that makes the divorcement clause applicable only to a franchised location sold or assigned on or after January 1, 2008, is removed. Amends § 59.1-21.15:1, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
