AB 1522 (Employment Paid Sick Days) Highlights:
The following is a summary of the regulatory issues that ASCCA is currently working on.
BRAKE REPAIR SERVICE REGULATIONS
ASCCA formed a task force committee and has been working with interested stakeholders and BAR on developing a minimal brake service standard to provide clarity to consumers and level playing field for the industry.
UNLICENSED AUTOMOTIVE ACTIVITY
ASCCA Government Affairs Committee continues to work with BAR on unlicensed activity, including investigating social sites such as Craig’s List, Yahoo, and others. Many of these postings on these sites were from unlicensed operators causing harm to consumers and creating an unlevel playing field for honest repair shops. BAR has been working with our association to identify and take action against these unscrupulous operators.
RIGHT TO REPAIR (RTR)
ASCCA continues to support RTR legislation until all Auto Manufacturers sign a voluntary agreement. Our Legislative advocate in Sacramento has been working with the Auto manufacturers, the aftermarket, and other organizations on this issue. We will continue to support this issue until our members are protected or an agreement is in place.
