Oklahoma has introduced The Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act, HB 1584, which allows motorists to choose where, how, and by whom to have their vehicles repaired; whose parts they wish to purchase; and even work on their vehicles themselves. Known by the abbreviated title of the "Right to Repair Act," the legislation protects car companies’ proprietary information while allowing consumer choice.
The national Motor Vehicle Owners’ Right to Repair Act, HR 2048, passed its first hurdle in May 2006, in the Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection. Due to the congressional calendar, the bill didn’t move into the next phase. The national “Right to Repair Act” will be reintroduced in this Congress.
