VAA is involved with issues that impact our industry. We maintain a registered lobbyist at the Virginia General Assembly, and work with many state agencies, including the Departments of State Police, Environmental Quality, Consumer Affairs and Taxation. Past years' successes have included working to save the Safety Inspection and Emissions Inspection programs, and change the tax code regarding charging sales tax on diagnostic labor and roadside assistance service labor.
