Right to Repair Model State Law

This document provides template legislation for state lawmakers that would secure the Right to Repair for consumers. Last year, Right to Repair bills were active in over dozen states, generating bipartisan support. To help improve consumer choice in the aftermarket, to help consumers save money, and to help reduce waste, Consumer Reports urges lawmakers to take up Right to Repair legislation.
