Issa to Re-Introduce Legislation to Address Lack of Consumer Options in Car Repair

Temecula, CA — Congressman Darrell Issa (R – CA 50) visited the Rancho California Auto Collision center in Temecula to meet with employees, discuss small business operations and the need for legislation to increase consumer options in car repair. Issa has previously sponsored legislation that would expand consumer choice for auto repair parts, cut costs paid by insurers and drivers, and enhance competition in the repair parts market.

“I want to thank Efren Terrazas of Rancho California Auto Collision, Professional Parts Group CEO Chris Northup, and all of the employees who met with me today in Temecula,” said Issa. “I appreciate their insights on the current small business climate and for emphasizing the need for policy changes that will encourage innovation and increase competition in the auto parts repair industry.  We can all agree consumers shouldn’t have to overpay for car repair.”

The PARTS Act, or The Promoting Automotive Repair, Trade, and Sales Act, has been introduced by Issa in four previous Congresses. Issa intends to reintroduce the bill this session.

“With a new car shortage and used car prices on the rise, families need access to affordable repair part options.  My legislation will increase consumer choice and thereby lower the cost of auto repairs through changes to auto parts design patent protections.”

Darrell Issa is the Representative of California’s 50th Congressional District. The District encompasses the central and northeastern parts of San Diego County and a portion of Riverside County, including the communities of Fallbrook, San Marcos, Valley Center, Ramona, Escondido, Santee, Lakeside, El Cajon, Temecula, and the mountain and desert areas of the San Diego-Imperial County line. Issa served as the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform from 2011-2015.
