Senator co-sponsors Right to Repair Act
United States Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota is throwing his support behind the Right to Repair Act, which will let consumers choose where and how their vehicles are serviced, as well as who will service them.
The Act was introduced in February 2004 by U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham.
"Senator Dorgan's support is crucial" to the bill, according to David Parde, president of the Coalition for Auto Repair Equality, who is pushing for its passage.
The Act is designed to ensure "that the car (manufacturers) will no longer have a virtual monopoly control on the wallets of hard-working motorists who are interested in quality repairs at affordable prices."
