It's part of the ARIN transfer process, https://www.arin.net/policy/nrpm.html#eight specific 8.3, "IPv4 numbers resources and ASNs may be transferred according to the following conditions."

ARIN has a Specified Transfer Listing Service, https://www.arin.net/resources/transfer_listing/index.html so you could check there.
I didn't see any ASNs listed, so you may need to call a broker, such as one listed under https://www.arin.net/resources/transfer_listing/facilitator_list.html

A list of ASNs that have been transferred policy can be found at https://www.arin.net/public/transferLog.xhtml#NRPM-8.3ASNs
