Amends the Labor and Storage Lien (Small Amount) Act. Provides that if an automotive collision and body repair facility or an automotive repair facility has a lien for storage or repairs against a vehicle that has been in its possession for 30 days or more and the vehicle is an abandoned junk vehicle or a hazardous dilapidated motor vehicle the facility may sell the vehicle after mailing, with return receipt requested, a Notice and Affidavit of Abandonment to the reported owner, any assignee, other lienor, or other person with a duly recorded security interest in the vehicle.

Upon the sale of the vehicle to a scrap processor and after satisfying the lien under the Act, any excess proceeds shall be paid to any others with an interest in the vehicle with the balance to be held by the lienor for 6 months. If the owner fails to claim the proceeds within 6 months, the lienor shall deposit the excess proceeds with the county treasurer for the county in which the vehicle was stored for deposit in the county's general revenue fund, subject to the right of the owner to claim the excess proceeds within 3 years after the date of the deposit with the treasurer.
