Governor Signs Bill to Curb Workers' Comp Costs    

As reported in the Armstrong Report, Governor Jerry Brown signed one piece of legislation that should reduce costs and vetoed two others, potentially saving California employers hundreds of millions of dollars on their workers' comp costs.


In a significant move, and a victory for employers and workers alike, Governor Brown signed AB 338 which is aimed at reining in one of the fastest growing cost drivers in the workers' comp system: compound drugs. These drugs sometimes known as convenience packs or medical food, are essentially two or more pharmaceuticals combine for the purpose of treating an injured worker's specific injury.

ASCCA Past President Mike Mahneke to Retire



ASCCA would like to wish Past President Mike Mahneke much health and happiness in his retirement. Mike has been a dedicated advocate on behalf of the automotive industry and has been an unwavering supporter of ASCCA. We thank him for his years of contribution to our organization and for setting the bar of excellence for ASCCA leadership. 



Installing Catalytic Converters



REMINDER - Installing a catalytic converter on a vehicle that has failed smog can ONLY be done by a Gold Shield or Test and Repair facility, or the consumer. A non-smog ARD including muffler shops (unless they're Gold Star or Test and Repair) cannot install or sublet a converter replacement that failed a Smog Check.
