Dear Attorney General Caldwell:
I am writing to express disappointment about statements your office recently made about recycled automotive parts. The Automotive Recycling Association (ARA) is an international trade association representing over 4,500 automotive recycling facilities in the United States and fourteen other countries around the world. Our members, affiliated chapters, and associate member companies all share a common goal of safely and efficiently processing inoperable motor vehicles in an environmentally responsible manner and encourage the reuse of quality, recycled Original Equipment Manufactured (OEM) parts in the automotive marketplace. I write to you today on behalf of ARA and the many professional automotive recycling businesses in Louisiana.
