In other news, a petition has been started on a national level intending to "Enforce safe car repairs to save live." It states that: "Many auto insurance companies force customers to take cars to insurance preferred body shops for repairs. By cutting corners and safety standards to save money, the driving public is at risk and the value of the customers' cars are diminished. Repair shops performing proper repairs are having a hard time staying in business. In 1963, US Attorney General Robert Kennedy sued the insurance industry to prevent them from forcing body shops to cut corners at the risk to public safety. The 1963 Consent Decree was signed stopping the auto insurance industry from controlling body shop labor rates, the parts used to repair cars, and returning the independence of auto body shops back to themselves. We plead with this Administration to enforce the 1963 Consent Decree for the safety of the American driving public." The petition had to be signed by 100,000 and had 30 days in which to do so. The petiton deadline was February 24 to get the signatures needed.
