WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Automotive Service Association (ASA) is urging Oklahoma shop owners to contact their state House of Representatives members and ask that they oppose House Bill 1584, the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act. H.B. 1584 would depend on a state government agency and the Oklahoma court system to assist repairers in acquiring automotive service information.

ASA says the Motor Vehicles Owners' Right to Repair Act would put at risk the progress that has been made through the Automotive Service Association-Automaker Agreement, which already provides independent repairers access to service, tool and training information via automaker Web sites.

"Right to Repair legislation has failed on the federal level in the last several congresses. Proponents of Right to Repair legislation have now moved to the state level. We hope Oklahoma legislators will also say no to Right to Repair legislation and more government intervention," says Bob Redding, ASA's Washington, D.C., representative.

ASA and other segments of the auto industry are working through the voluntary National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF) to assure repairers timely service information via the automaker Web sites. ASA asks Oklahoma repairers to contact their state House of Representatives members and urge them to oppose the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act, House Bill 1584. To view the language of OK H 1584 in its entirety, and to send an opposition letter to your Oklahoma representatives, please visit ASA's legislative Web site, www.TakingTheHill.com.
