COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) and ASA-Ohio are urging their members to contact state legislators to oppose an auto insurance-related amendment to Ohio budget legislation.
The amendment would transfer responsibility for informing motorists when non-original-equipment parts are used in a repair from insurers to repair shops.
"As most auto insurers' policies require the use of non-OEM or used parts during the repair of the vehicle, this measure would place an unfair burden of enforcing the insurers' provisos on the repairer," the ASA said in a press release.
To send a letter opposing the amendments, go to the ASA's legislative website, www.TakingTheHill.com.
