A proposed bill that would have changed the way collision repair shops in Arizona do business has been held over to the next legislative session. House Bill 2394, introduced by state Rep. Nancy McLain (R-3) in the Arizona House of Representatives, would have had a negative impact on auto body shops throughout the state with the original text, according to the Automotive Service Association (ASA).

Supporters of the original language sought to stop shops from charging storage fees at the same time collision shops were being paid for teardown to complete an estimate. This bill would have forced shops, in many situations, to absorb the costs associated with vehicle storage or bill it to the vehicle owner. The language is not included in the current bill being considered, according to ASA.

ASA-Arizona opposed the bill with the unlawful practices language. ASA says it alerted member shops about the proposed language and worked with the legislature to ensure the bill did not move through the legislative process as introduced. H.B. 2394 passed the House Committee on Banking and Insurance as a “Strike Everything” amended bill.
