Donate to ASCCA's Advocacy Fund

We're approaching $4,000 in the ASCCA Advocacy Fund, thanks to the recent raffle at the summer conference! Thank you to everyone who has donated! ASCCA established this fund to enhance our advocacy with the state legislature (e.g., legislative advocate's travel, ASCCA's annual legislative day lobbying, Government Affairs Committee initiatives). Help us reach our goal of $30,000, donate today.


Engage Your Customers on the Issue of Telematics

The ASCCA Public Relations committee is encouraging all ASCCA members to begin engaging their customers in a consumer education campaign on Telematics.  A flyer has been developed by the Committee for you to use in your shops.  Consider displaying these flyers and even attaching them to your customer invoices. The intent is to engage your customer in a dialogue with you so you can inform them of what Telematics is and the potential risk it presents to their right for privacy.  You can take this opportunity to inform your customer that through your association you are advocating on their behalf in an attempt to protect consumer privacy.

ASCCA Meet with CalEPA OEHHA Regarding Prop 65 Regulations

On August 22, ASCCA Legislative Advocate Jack Molodanof and Executive Director Gloria Peterson along with Johan Gallo Executive Director of CalABC met to educate the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), a division of CalEPA, on the automotive repair industry. One of the primary concerns is that the way the draft regulation is written leaves a likely potential for unnecessary litigation and frivolous lawsuits.

Read the report here.


ASCCA had previously submitted comments outlying its concerns.
