The Automotive Service Association (ASA) says it supports a repeal of the McCarran-Ferguson Act, including those protections for property and casualty insurers. A full repeal is proposed in H.R. 1583, which was introduced by Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., and is co-sponsored by Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., and would impact the insurance industry as a whole, including property and casualty insurers.
