Opposing sides in Massachusetts' Right to Repair debate reached an agreement today on a bill that would give independent repair shops in the state the same access to repair codes and tooling as franchise dealers.
Massachusetts lawmakers have until 11:59 p.m. ET tonight to pass the proposed bill. This is the last day of the legislative session.
The issue will also still be considered on the state's election ballot in November.
Several state senators and representatives said they received a joint letter today announcing the agreement between the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, Global Automakers, the Massachusetts Right to Repair Coalition and the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association
