PHOENIX, Ariz. — The California/Nevada/Arizona Automotive Wholesalers’ Association (CAWA) and its affiliate the Arizona Automotive Wholesalers’ Association (AAWA) are reporting a successful outcome to their lobbying efforts after the Arizona legislature signed into law a bill that provides monetary relief for Arizona parts stores that sell lead batteries.
Under the new law, HB 2130, which takes effect July 29, Arizona parts stores may assess battery core deposits up to $15 per battery, compared to the previous $5 limitation.

“Despite the political challenges of a difficult legislative session, the Arizona Automotive Wholesalers’ Association was very effective in working with lawmakers to achieve legislative victories for our members,” said Rodney Pierini, AAWA president and CEO.
