New Jersey gets companion bill to Right to Repair Act

March 7, 2007

A pair of New Jersey senators have introduced a companion bill to the state's version of the Right to Repair Act.

Senate Majority leader Bernard Kenny (D-Hoboken) and Senator Joseph Kyrillos (R-Middletown) unveiled the bill.

"New Jersey's motoring consumers and over 7,000 small aftermarket locations are fortunate to have a state legislature that is moving forward to seek relief from the growing monopoly that will prohibit consumers from the right to have their vehicles repaired at their shop of choice," says David Parde, president of the Coalition for Auto Repair Equality, a pro-Right to Repair group.

Tha national Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act is expected to be re-introduced into the 110th Congress.
