TIA focuses on Right to Repair at the Automotive Aftermarket Legislative Summit
The Tire Industry Association (TIA) made its presence known at the recently held Automotive Aftermarket Legislative Summit in Washington, D.C.
TIA not only was one of the event's sponsors, but also announced its support for the newly reintroduced Motor Vehicle Owner's Right to Repair Act, H.R. 2694, which was introduced in the 110th Congress.
This year, the two-day summit was heralded as the most widely attended yet. (Modern Tire Dealer was once again on hand; look for our coverage of the summit in our July issue.)
"The introduction of Right to Repair legislation in the states may be beginning to pay off," says Roy Littlefield, TIA's executive vice president. "Members and staff were getting very favorable responses from the congressional offices we were visiting (June 13). There were good signals that we’ll be getting a Senate bill as well this year."
According to TIA Director of Government and Business Relations Paul Fiore, the coalition of aftermarket groups will begin the process of gathering co-sponsors for H.R. 2694 immediately, and TIA is eager to deliver their share.
