Legislative Involvement Made Easy
TakingTheHill.com - Focused on a commitment to advance grassroots advocacy campaigns, ASA's legislative Web site, www.TakingtheHill.com, helps mobilize support or opposition for issues directly impacting the automotive repair industry on both federal and state levels. The core of the Web site is ASA's Legislative Alert Center. This program allows industry members to contact their representatives regarding specific legislation and, with the click of a button, send an e-mail to their elected officials. Visitors to the site, which include shop owners and motorists alike, have used ASA's Legislative Alert Center to send messages addressing insurer-owned repair shop legislation, Association Health Plans legislation and opposition of the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act. Want to track a particular piece of legislation in Congress? You can do that through this convenient Web site. Visit www.TakingTheHill.com today for your legislative information.
