right to repair

Backers of the so-called "Right To Repair" ballot question are now urging supporters in Massachusetts to vote "yes" on the initiative.

The Right to Repair Committee had initially joined with auto manufacturers to urge voters to skip Question 1 on the November ballot after both sides reached a compromise which was later approved by lawmakers.

The new law requiring car makers provide independent repair shops with access to their diagnostic systems was approved in July, too late to remove it from the ballot.
