Colorado right to repair House Bill 1011 passed a vote in the Colorado Senate on March 16. According to a March 16 report from Colorado Politics, the bill would "require manufacturers to sell tools, parts and digital access to farmers and independent repair shops to diagnose and fix problems with equipment, beginning in 2024." The bill was approved by the Colorado House of Representatives last month.

NAEDA Vice President of Government Affairs Eric Wareham breaks down what the bill contains, its future path and how it might affect dealers in Colorado.
