During its annual Legislative Fly-In Day, held April 23 in Sacramento, ASCCA presented California State Assemblymember Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley) with its prestigious Legislator of the Year Award in recognition of his support for ASCCA and the independent automotive repair industry.
Elected to the Legislature in 2014, Assemblymember Low chairs the powerful Business and Professions Committee, which oversees the Department of Consumer Affairs and its licensing agencies, including the Bureau of Automotive Repair.
ASCCA bestows its Legislator of the Year Award to members of the Legislature who have demonstrated a commitment to listening to the voices of the automotive repair industry and working with ASCCA to address the challenges facing its members. In recent years, Assemblymember Evan Low has worked closely with ASCCA on the Bureau of Automotive Repair’s Sunset Review and Assembly Bill 3141, signed into law in 2018, which included previously-exempt maintenance service providers under BAR jurisdiction, while maintaining the oil changer business model.
Assemblymember Low was presented his award by ASCCA Government Affairs Committee Chair Dave Kusa.
