The Nebraska State Legislature is considering a bill that would give dealers and farmers access to software codes from the manufacturers to repair farm equipment, according to a report by KOLN/KGIN —10/11 News.
According to 10/11 News,
Some farmers that spoke in the hearing this afternoon say when their tractor has an issue they have to travel hours to get to the store where they got their equipment from because the manufactures don't give out their software to fix the technology with the machine.
Meanwhile, local repair shops say this is hurting their business because they cant fix these machines if they don't know how to get into the software.
