Today, we stand at a pivotal point in the journey toward consumer and farmer empowerment. Two critical bills, HB 4562 and HB 4673, have been introduced in the Michigan legislature. These bills have the power to transform our relationship with technology, giving us the ability to fix our devices, and helping farmers repair their equipment.
HB 4562 – The General Right to Repair Bill: This proposed legislation would make it mandatory for manufacturers to provide consumers and independent repair shops with the necessary tools, parts, and information to fix electronic devices like smartphones, laptops, appliances, and more.
HB 4673 – The Agriculture Bill: This bill addresses the much-needed right to repair agricultural machinery. Many farmers in our great state are facing tough times due to restrictive manufacturer policies that prevent them from repairing their own equipment.

Right to Repair is simple. It requires manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with fair access to service information and affordable replacement parts. So you can fix the stuff you own quickly—and get back on with your life.
Well, manufacturers like John Deere and Apple don’t like the idea. When your tractor breaks or your cell phone stops working, they want to be the only people who can fix it. And they get to set whatever prices they want for parts and service.
Nope! We already have right to repair for cars—that’s why you can take your Ford into a local mechanic. They have all the same software diagnostics and service manuals that the dealerships have. This is the result of decades of auto Right to Repair legislation—laws that have been a resounding success.
It’s time to fight for your right to repair and defend local repair jobs—the corner mom-and-pop repair shops that keep getting squeezed out. Write or call your legislator. Tell them you support the Fair Repair Act. Tell them that you believe repair should be fair, affordable, and accessible. Stand up for your right to repair in Michigan!
