Wyo. Crash Parts Legislation Stalls in House
Feb. 13, 2019—A bill many deemed harmful to collision repairers and consumers has stalled in the Wyoming House of Representatives.
Opposed by ASA and collision repair shops in Wyoming, the “crash parts” bill –SF0095 – had been on a fast track after garnering quick approval from the Wyoming Senate.
The Wyoming legislation stated: “AN ACT relating to insurance; providing standards for the use of aftermarket parts in automobile damage repairs; requiring disclosure when any use is proposed of a non-original manufacturer part; requiring that all aftermarket parts be identified and be of the same quality as the original part; and providing for an effective date.”
Collision repairers communicated their concerns to members of the Wyoming legislature, and it appears the Wyoming House won’t be moving forward this session with SF0095. The Wyoming legislature is scheduled to adjourn at the end of the month.
