BETHESDA, MD — Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Wash., last week became the 100th member of Congress to sign on as a sponsor of the Motor Vehicle Owners’ Right to Repair Act (H.R. 2735).
“This is an important and exciting milestone in the battle to enact this legislation so critical to the future competitiveness of the independent aftermarket,” said Kathleen Schmatz, AAIA president and CEO. “We must guarantee that independents have full access to the information and tools necessary to compete with the new car dealers.”
“While 100 sponsors is encouraging, we need to keep up the pressure at both the national and grassroots level to obtain more congressional sponsors,” said Schmatz. “We have worked non-stop with the coalition of supporters since introducing the initial legislation in August 2001.”
