For the first time ever, the state legislature of Wyoming is considering Right to Repair legislation for farm equipment. But we need your help to get the bill passed.
The Right to Repair Farm Equipment Act, HB 0199, is simple. It requires equipment manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with access to service information and reasonably priced replacement parts. So you can fix your equipment by yourself or at a repair shop of your choice.
Manufacturers like John Deere don't like that idea. When your tractor breaks, they want to be the only ones who can fix it. And they get to charge whatever price they feel like for parts and service.
It's your tractor. You bought it. You own it. You shouldn't have to beg the manufacturer for permission to fix it. In fact, we think that the bill should cover more than just farm equipment. An even better bill would cover all digital equipment—like computers, mobile phones, cameras, and appliances. We should have the right to repair every single thing we own.
If you want to protect your right to repair farm equipment, write a letter to your state legislator and say so. And if you think HB 0199 should be amended to include all types of digital equipment—tell your representative in the Wyoming state legislature that repair should be available to everyone, for all kinds of digital equipment.
It's time to fight for your right to repair and to defend local repair jobs—the corner mechanics that keep getting squeezed out. Tell your rep you support the Right to Repair Farm Equipment Act, HB 0199.
