Right to Repair: LC1562
This bill would provide that the manufacturers of electronics enabled equipment provide farmers and ranchers, as well as independent repair shops, the tools necessary to repair their own equipment. Montana Farmers Union supports this bill because equipment manufacturers currently refuse access or charge unreasonable prices for technical advisor software needed to troubleshoot equipment. Without the software and hardware needed to troubleshoot, farmers and ranchers are forced to use only the implement dealer for minor and major repairs. The cost of repairs and downtime has a severe impact on our bottom line and adds undue stress to our lives.
