The Motor Vehicle Owners Right to Repair Act (A 352) was reintroduced in the state of New Jersey on Jan. 10 by Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D). Similar to legislation that had been considered by the state in previous years, the bill would require car companies to make the same service information and tools available to the independent repair industry that they make available to their new car dealers. A right to repair bill also sponsored by Assemblyman Gusciora passed the State Assembly in 2008 by a 49-22 vote, but stalled in the Senate due to strong opposition from new car dealers, unions and the vehicle manufacturers.
 
The introduction in New Jersey coincides with an ongoing lobbying effort in Massachusetts, where a ballot measure on Right to Repair has been certified by the Secretary of State. That ballot measure will soon be introduced in the Massachusetts legislature, which will have until May 2 to act on it and therefore preclude the need for it to appear on the ballot in November.
