Rules Suspended for Anti-Steering/"Right to Repair" Bill in Massachusetts
House rules have been suspended in the review of a Massachusetts
bill designed to entitle consumers to their choice of repair shops.
House Bill 296, which originally was introduced by Rep. Vincent
Pedone, reads as follows:
"Consumers are entitled to choose among competing repair facilities
for the convenient, reliable, and affordable repair of their motor
The bill, introduced in 2007 and referred to as "The Right to Repair
Act of 2007," also would, if passed, ensure that automotive repair
shops have access to the same diagnostic codes that auto manufacturers
do when attempting to repair vehicles showing diagnostic errors.
