28 State Attorneys General Call for Congress to Pass REPAIR Act

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita and Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul authored a letter to the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee and the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee calling on them to pass key right to repair bills, including the SEMA-supported “Right to Equitable and Professional Auto Industry Repair (REPAIR) Act,” H.R. 906. The letter was signed by Attorneys General representing 26 other states, noting that “Manufacturing of automobiles, digital devices and agricultural equipment is increasingly becoming more technologically advanced and built with more embedded electronics. OEMs often control access to these electronics parts, creating unfair restraint of trade and a monopoly on repair. This can harm consumers directly by driving up prices and is antithetical to a free market.”
