ASA-Ohio Supports Mechanical Shop Registration Legislation

Ohio state Sens. Edna Brown (D-11), Tom Patton (R-24) and Peggy Lehner (R-6) recently introduced Ohio Senate Bill 232, legislation establishing a mechanical shop registration program in their state. The bill has been referred to the Senate Committee on Commerce and Labor.

Ohio state Sens. Edna Brown (D-11), Tom Patton (R-24) and Peggy Lehner (R-6) recently introduced Ohio Senate Bill 232, legislation establishing a mechanical shop registration program in their state. The bill has been referred to the Senate Committee on Commerce and Labor.
    

Ohio Senate Bill 232 extends the jurisdiction of the Motor Vehicle Repair Board to anyone who performs mechanical repairs on motor vehicles, requires motor vehicle repair facilities to register with the board, creates the Motor Vehicle Repair Operator Vendor’s License Suspension Fund, makes changes to the Motor Vehicle Repair and Window Tint Operator Law, and dissolves the existing Motor Vehicle Repair Board and replaces it with a new board of the same name.
    

“Mechanical repair” is defined as “Any alteration or maintenance, diagnostic or repair service procedures that are performed on and affect or potentially affect the operation of a motor vehicle.”
    

Joe Sanfillipo, ASA-Ohio past president and current board member, said: “We have been very pleased with our state collision shop registration bill and ASA believes the next step is to put in place a mechanical shop registration law for the state of Ohio. We encourage repairers to contact their state legislators asking that they support this bill.”
