(3) There is a lack of proper training and equipment that auto body repair shops need to meet the demands of the highly evolved and sophisticated automobile manufacturing industry.

(4) California has no minimum standards or requirements for auto body repair shops.

(5) Existing laws currently regulating the auto body industry could be strengthened.
