Nebraska Autobody Association Takes Industry Issues to State Capitol

The Nebraska Autobody Association (NABA) recently opened state senators’ eyes to industry issues with a briefing at the State Capitol.

NABA presented an automotive PowerPoint presentation that NABA Director and Lobbyist Norbert Zaenglein said really hit home with the senators.

“The PowerPoint was definitely an asset as it helped convey a dramatic picture of emerging automotive technologies along with the economic opportunities these technologies create for the State of Nebraska,” Zaenglein said.

Also in attendance was the Speaker of the House and the Department of Insurance’s Chief of Market Conduct Regulation. The Capitol briefing was designed to acquaint the legislature with trends and developments in automotive technology and to underscore the role of the collision repair industry as a vital component of Nebraska’s economy.

“You know that your legislative strategy is working when you can get half of your elected representatives in a room for over 45 minutes,” Zaenglein said. “We took a chance on a unique approach and our efforts were rewarded by an exceptional turnout.”

NABA’s legislative day at the Capitol was the beginning of an overall strategy to familiarize Nebraska’s legislative body with the complexities of the collision repair industry. NABA plans to approach specific legislators soon and examine with them how specific legislation can help claimants receive the coverage promised by their policy of insurance.
