Right to Repair Act Draws Three More Congressional Sponsors

October 25, 2007

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- The Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA), which is lobbying for the passage of the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act (H.R. 2694), said the bill's list of sponsors has grown to 33.The bill seeks to prevent automakers and others from restricting access to vehicle computer information and tools necessary to accurately diagnose, repair, reprogram or install auto replacement parts. Supporters argue that, if passed, the bill would promote greater competition in the auto repair industry.The bill's newest sponsors are representatives Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) and David Price (D-N.C.).The automakers oppose the bill, arguing that it would require them to release proprietary information.
