I've been working on a bit today. The site is designed to be a resource for states, listing information about what other states are doing with ELT. It's got a list of standard ELT transactions and which ones are supported by different states.

By our records, there are 18 states with some kind of an ELT program: AZ, CA, FL, GA, HI, ID, KS, LA, MA, NY, OH, PA, SC, TX, UT, VA, WA, and WI. Some of these states are "closed" to third party providers like DDI, and some we're just not ready to get going in yet.

Since information is not always easy to come by, and harder to compare, I've tried to analyze what each state is doing. I've got 10 of the states' basic transactions identified, but I'd like to take that documentation a lot further and include some other data, including legislation examples from ELT states and vehicle brands (stolen, water damaged, odometer tampering, etc) supported by each state.

Hopefully this will be useful to states considering or defining an ELT program.
