Part of the mission of the Automotive Service Association of Arizona is advocating for members and monitoring issues that impact their business. There are several levels of advocacy, which include monitoring legislation at the state level, attending regulatory meetings from various agencies that are implementing changes into the existing laws and representing the interest of the automotive industry and researching your questions about the law and regulations. The goal is to promote changes that will safeguard your independence and your ability to run a successful business.
HB 2394: Unlawful Practices: motor vehicle repair: Without the representation of ASA of Arizona at the State Capitol, this bill would have likely passed with little or no opposition. The Collision division members of ASA of AZ met to discuss the impact of this legislation, and Luz Rubio, Executive Director quickly scheduled a meeting with the sponsor, Representative McLain to express our opposition and the opportunity to explain how our industry works. Our association was also included at the one stakeholder meeting that was held to discuss the bill. This Bill will be introduced again next session, and the association needs to hear from you!
It’s time to regroup and bring our industry together to get input on the issues and challenges faced by collision repair shops today – redefining where we go from here. Plan to attend the Town Hall Meeting on March 29.
