Passage of the Right to Repair Act is a Chance for Congress to Demonstrate their Commitment to Small Business
We often hear members of Congress talk about the challenges facing small businesses and the need to help them compete. Passage of the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act (HR 2057) is a chance for Congress to demonstrate their commitment to small businesses throughout the country.
The Right to Repair Act simply requires that vehicle manufacturers provide car owners and their trusted neighborhood repair shops with equitable access to accurate service and repair information. Allowing these small businesses to compete on a level playing field will ensure the long term survival of a competitive automotive repair industry.
Many of our members have small businesses that have been in their family for generations. They are not seeking an unfair advantage, nor are they looking for access to the proprietary information protected by the bill. Instead, they are asking Congress to ensure that they are able to compete fairly now and in the future.
We encourage all vehicle owners to visit www.righttorepair.org to send a letter to their congressional representatives urging them to support passage of the Right to Repair Act.
