Approximately 195 aftermarket business owners and others attended the event packed day. Issues discussed ranged from the business climate in California to workers compensation reform to amending Business and Professions Code 17200 to end “unfair competition” frivolous lawsuits. Two legislators and several other panel speakers brought the attendees up to date on a variety of state and national issues affecting business and the automotive aftermarket industry. Attendees then descended on the State Capitol to meet with their state assemblymembers and Senators to educate them about ASC, the industry, and issues mentioned above.
