Massachusetts Attorney General to Enforce Right to Repair Law


Recommended Posts

The CAR Coalition has reported that Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Joy Campbell is prepared to move forward with the Massachusetts Right to Repair law.

Ballot Question 1, which updated the state’s landmark 2013 Right to Repair law, passed with 75% of the vote in November 2020. Since then, automakers have kept the law tied in up federal court in an effort to block its implementation.

While a federal judge has delayed ruling on the automakers’ lawsuit on six occasions, the attorney general recently issued notice that she intends to enforce the law effective June 1:

“The people of Massachusetts deserve the benefit of the law they approved more than two years ago. Consumers and independent repair shops deserve to know whether they will receive access to vehicle repair data in the manner provided by the law. Auto manufacturers (“OEMs”) and dealers need to understand their obligations under the law and take action to achieve compliance.”

– Massachusetts Attorney General Andrea Joy Campbell

On the national stage, U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn recently re-introduced

HR 906, as introduced in Congress, aims 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.”

“When it comes to repairing their automobiles, consumers deserve options,” said Dunn, a Florida Republican. “The REPAIR Act would give owners, including the rural communities in my district, secure access to critical data so their chosen service center can replace parts and repair their vehicles. I am proud to support competition in the vehicle repair industry.”

Dunn is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has responsibility for consumer protection, among several other topics. The bill was referred to the committee on Feb. 9.

Equipped with 32 loading docks, the new facility will become operational once it is fully outfitted with features to optimize efficiencies, including logistical and material handling technology, picking modules, conveyor systems, warehouse management software, and expedited will call and local delivery.  
      The Chicopee location is strategically located between three existing Fisher distribution centers, allowing for further store expansion in Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont, the company said. Up to 150 stores will be serviced by the new facility.
      The new Chicopee facility adds 217,000 sq. ft. to Fisher’s distribution center footprint of more than 2.5 million sq. ft. Supplying 19 states in which the company currently does business, the nine Fisher distribution centers are linked daily to provide over 92% fill rates, product coverage and overnight delivery from a company-owned fleet, according to Fisher Auto Parts. 
      In addition, over 50 Greenfield locations have been opened or are scheduled to open by the end of 2024, including several mega-hub locations.
      “We believe in the adage that no matter what our lot in life, we should build something on it,” said Reid. “There are much larger competitors; however, due to the highly capable team that we are honored to work with, we can be proud of our past results as we strive for future growth. We are especially grateful to all of our channel partners, including customers, suppliers, APSG associates, and, in particular, team members for their unwavering dedication to outstanding customer service.”

Emphasizing shared values between GM and global suppliers, the rigorous selection process distinguishes those who align closely with GM’s principles.

Together, we’re pushing boundaries, pioneering new technologies and redefining what’s possible,” said Jeff Morrison, vice president, Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, General Motors. “Their innovation and support are critical to helping us deliver the world-class vehicles our customers have to come expect.”
