ASA Collision Leaders Hold Meetings on Capitol Hill

Members encourage Congress to review Most Favored Nation clauses.

The Automotive Service Association (ASA) announced that its collision leaders met with their members of Congress and staff to discuss the impact of Most Favored Nation (MFN) clauses in direct repair agreements.

ASA members gave real-life examples of the effects of the MFN clause on collision repair shops as well as consumers, and asked lawmakers to consider options to stop the use of MFN clauses. ASA leaders emphasized the U.S. Department of Justice’s history with the MFN clause, citing the example of its lawsuit against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan in 2013.

“We continue to educate policymakers about the negative impact of MFN clauses on consumers and small businesses,” said Dan Risley, ASA president. “We were pleased with the interest in this issue on Capitol Hill. It’s important to keep the lines of communication open between repairers and congressional representatives. We made useful contacts and look forward to working with Congress in the future.”
