Naturally, every one of these bills will be opposed vigorously by the insurance industry, their associations, lobbyists and public relations firms hired by insurers to misinform the public by way of high-powered ads.
For the bills that do pass and become law, they’re meaningless unless they’re enforced. Enforcement is needed and must be insisted upon by consumers and shop owners alike in each state. We at the Independent Auto Body Association (IABA) and other groups will be lobbying congress, the U.S. Department of Justice, state legislatures and every possible agency with enforcement powers
to do something about the insurance monopoly in collision repair and auto glass
replacement. Consumer safety will be emphasized at every level.
