Become an Automotive Recycler's Advocate!
As an automotive recycler and small business owner in your community, you are uniquely qualified to communicate with your elected federal and state representatives and help them understand the value of recycled auto parts. It is important that decision makers have access to valid, reliable information about quality recycled auto parts -- and hearing from ARA members is the first step. Concerns expressed by constituents help influence a legislator's position. When professional automotive recyclers across the country speak with one consistent voice, our industry has more influence and impact on decision makers.

State legislatures across the country will convene in the coming weeks for the start of the 2014 legislative session. ARA along with its affiliated state chapters and grassroots network of automotive recyclers will be closely monitoring legislation that is introduced in all 50 state legislatures that could potentially impact the professional automotive recycling industry.
Several pieces of legislation with implications for automotive recyclers will be carried over from 2013 and ARA is tracking new legislation in several states that could impact the operation of professional automotive recycling facilities.
Issues expected to dominate the 2014 state legislative agenda include: counterfeit airbags, used and scrap tires, unregulated/unlicensed buyers at salvage auctions, salvage acquisition, sales tax, parts procurement and scrap metal theft.
