ASA also suggested that the city’s staff continue to dialogue with our ASA Houston leadership to ensure the final regulation is the best possible for consumers and repairers. The association highlighted the opportunity that the proposal presents to address training concerns for the industry that impact the consumer, and stated that Houston chapter leaders would like to work with city council staff to ensure that licensed repair facilities adhere to appropriate training requirements for technicians.
The ordinance will be voted on by the city council Dec. 21, 2011. ASA opposes the current draft ordinance and encourages the city council to make additional improvements.
