The REPAIR Act bill (H.R. 906) will be part of an upcoming congressional subcommittee meeting, according to the Energy & Commerce Committee Democrats website.
The title of the hearing is "Proposals to Enhance Product Safety and Transparency for Americans.” It will be held on Wednesday, September 27 at 10:30 a.m. EDT in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. There will also be a livestream available of the hearing.
The Subcommittee on Innovation, Data, and Commerce of the Committee on Energy and Commerce will host the hearing. The REPAIR Act is one of 14 pieces of legislation that will be discussed.
The REPAIR Act seeks "To ensure consumers have access to data relating to their motor vehicles, critical repair information, and tools, and to provide them choices for the maintenance, service, and repair of their motor vehicles, and for other purposes," according to the bill description.
The Auto Care Association has been actively advocating for passage of the REPAIR Act. On September 20-21, the ACA held its 2023 Auto Care Fall Leadership Days and Legislative Summit, which took place in Washington, D.C. The event included opportunities for meetings amongst community members and even some members of congress, according to the Auto Care Association website. There were 191 members of ACA in attendance advocating for the bill at the nation's capital.
