Houston Auto Body Association Hosts Legislative Breakfast for Texas Reps

The Houston Auto Body Association (HABA) hosted a legislative breakfast event on February 16 at the Capitol Grill in the Texas State Captiol.

The event allowed attendees from the collision repair industry to meet and discuss issues with their state representatives.

The entire legislature was invited to the event that ran from 8:30am to 10:30am.

“The breakfast was a success with around 200 in attendance, we also visited all 150 State Representatives offices and all 31 State Senators,” said HABA’s President James Brown.

HABA passed out individual letters to each representative that detailed HABA’s mission and code of ethics, along with gift bags containing a coaster and acrylic car with HABA’s website and logo on them.

“On a side note, the Automotive Service Association (ASA) was there and making their rounds trying to gain support for HB 429 concerning the Franchise Tax law revision which would allow Independant Automotive and Collision shops to be taxed at the same rate as Dealer owned Automotive and Collision Shops which we support as well,” said Brown.

Breakfast was included in the event which was sponsored by HABA and the Automotive Parts and Service Association.
