Dear Texas,

It's time to speak out for your right to repair

This year, the people of Texas have a chance to guarantee the right to repair everything from agricultural equipment, consumer electronics, and even critical medical equipment — like anesthesia machines and ventilators.

Right now, Texas lawmakers are considering HB4063, an agricultural Right to Repair bill, HB3198, Right to Repair for consumer electronics, and HB2541, a medical Right to Repair act to ensure that hospitals can repair machines and avoid shortages of critical equipment like ventilators. Whether it’s a tractor, laptop or ventilator, you should have the ability to fix and maintain the stuff you own. Tell your legislator that you want the right to repair.

There are two easy ways to get in touch: call and write. We’ll track down your legislator’s contact info for you.

Tell your repair story

Common Questions about Right to Repair

What does Right to Repair do?

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.

That sounds great! Who would be against that?

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.

Is Right to Repair a new concept?

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.

How can I get involved?

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 Texas!
