REPAIR Act Heard In Innovation, Data, and Commerce Subcommittee

The U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Innovation, Data, and Commerce held a hearing this week on “Proposals to Enhance Product Safety and Transparency for Americans.” The subcommittee hearing included the review of 14 bills, including H.R. 906, "Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act." The SEMA-supported REPAIR Act is a bipartisan bill that would ensure automotive enthusiasts, aftermarket parts manufacturers, and repair shops have access to the information and tools needed to maintain and personalize vehicles as automotive technology evolves.

SEMA President and CEO Mike Spagnola submitted a formal statement supporting H.R. 906 and encouraged lawmakers to expand the bill to include similar protections to protect businesses that produce and install parts that modify or customize vehicles.
