Why Join the Illinois Vehicle Repair Association (IVRA)?
In 2009, the Illinois Secretary of State Director of Vehicle Services created a list of new rules which negatively effected thousands of Illinois repair and auto service facilities when it comes to unclaimed vehicles. These rules were never published as required by the Illinois Administrative Code. This is a violation of:
Chapter 5 ILCS - Illinois Administrative Procedure Act
Sine then, our industry has been devastated by policy changes within the Secretary of State’s office by their handling of Mechanic’s Lien.
We have tried repeatedly to get them to change their policy, but to no avail. Because the Secretary of State’s unfair policies impact everyone in the vehicle service and repair business. I believe a more effective way to get the situation corrected is to tackle it from the perspective of a statewide organization rather than just one individual.
This is precisely why we have formed the Illinois Vehicle Repair Association (IVRA): to facilitate the process by which Illinois vehicle repair and service shops can obtain titles for unclaimed vehicles … and we need your support!
With your help and that of other vehicle repair shops and service professionals, we have retained the services of experienced professional lobbyists to hlep bring the necessary focus and attention to our cause. Additionally, a new legislative session started in January that included many freshman legislators recently sworn into the Statehouse so this is EXACTLY the right time to double our efforts.
