ASA monitors issues at the state and federal level, identifying legislation and regulations most important to members.

ASA provides information and grassroots opportunities through its legislative website, TakingTheHill.org, and various association publications. ASA’s goal is to advance the plight of independent automotive repairers, protecting our members from legislation and regulations that may harm their businesses, and advancing those policies that make our members’ businesses stronger.
