This year, the people of New Jersey have two chances to guarantee their right to repair their equipment—like tractors, appliances, digital equipment, and cell phones.
It’s yours. You own it. You shouldn’t have to beg the manufacturer for permission to fix it.
New Jersey’s Digital Fair Repair Act, A1538, would require manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with access to service information, diagnostic tools, and affordable replacement parts. So you can fix the stuff you own quickly—and get on with your life.
Farmers don’t like waiting around for dealer repair people, either—when farmers can fix broken equipment themselves, they do. A3612 would make sure that farmers and independent repair shops can complete repairs on Montana farm equipment.
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.
Call or write your legislators now, using the easy tools below. Tell them why repair matters to you—and why it should be affordable, accessible, and not locked away behind manufacturer repair monopolies.

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 New Jersey!
