They highlighted U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe’s (R-Okla.) amendment to S. 1885, the AV START Act, which would form an advisory committee on automated vehicle data access issues. The amendment provides for the HAV Data Access Advisory Committee, comprised of stakeholders, to provide a report to Congress within 30 months of enactment. This process allows for independent repairers to educate federal regulators about the importance of this issue to repairers.

ASA also met with officials at the U.S. Department of Transportation to share views about the importance of continued access to vehicle repair information. Following the meetings, Schnepper said, “Automated vehicle policy will affect the entire automotive industry, not just OEs and consumers. These issues are complicated and nuanced, and we were encouraged to hear that our leaders in Washington are taking this seriously. If passed, the Inhofe amendment in the AV bill will allow more time for the industry to provide additional insights to Congress and the Administration.”
