Congressman Introduces Federal ‘Right to Repair’ Bill

As individual US states review passing “Right to Repair” laws, one congressman is introducing a federal bill to do the same, but nationwide.

On Thursday, US Rep. Joe Morelle (D-NY) announced the Fair Repair Act, which seeks to make it easier for consumers to fix their broken electronics, without having to pay a costly sum to the original manufacturers.

The bill proposes doing this by requiring tech companies to make product repair information, replacement parts, and tools readily available to consumers and third-party repair shops.
