Advocating for the Success of Independent Automotive Repair Shops and Tire Dealers
Legislation can significantly impact the operations and profitability of repair shops, tire stores, and distributors of industry related products. Laws and regulations affect multiple types of services a small business can offer, ex; technician training and certification, in addition to the equipment and tools that a shop must use. Staying informed and engaged in the legislative process will provide owners the tools to monitor laws and regulations affecting their businesses to be fair, reasonable, and support the continued growth of our industry. While it is time consuming and difficult for business owners to keep track of every bill introduced, and new regulations that arise, we can help you be compliant and avoid penalties and fines. The ASTA staff works hard to provide you with the information you need to stay informed.
