Tell your state senator: Support the “Right to Repair”

If we're going to start tackling our throwaway society it begins with giving consumers more tools to fix the "stuff" that they have instead of putting it in the trash and buying a new device. But manufacturers make it almost impossible to do that--hindering consumers' ability to take things to independent repair shops, withholding repair manuals and parts, and putting up other roadblocks.

Luckily, a bipartisan group of state legislators have introduced Senate Bill 998, which would require manufacturers to promote options for repairing things when they break instead of being forced to just throw them out. Ask your state senator to call for a committee vote on this important issue today.

Subject: Please encourage the Consumer Protection Committee to call SB998 for a vote before summer recess
