(2) the prospective application of any court judgment interpreting or applying any State statute; or
(3) the prospective application of any final State regulation, order, bulletin, or other statutorily authorized interpretation or action,
which, by its specific terms, expressly regulates or exempts from regulation any person who solicits the purchase of or sells insurance connected with, and incidental to, the short-term lease or rental of a motor vehicle.
(c) Scope of application
This section shall apply with respect to—
(1) the lease or rental of a motor vehicle for a total period of 90 consecutive days or less; and
