Framed by a tractor, Gov. Jared Polis signed into law the nation’s first agricultural Right to Repair policy on the steps of the Capitol. The bill will ensure Colorado’s farmers and ranchers have the access to the tools they need to fix their equipment.

CoPIRG applauds the sponsors of the bill, Representatives Brianna Titone and Ron Weinberg, and Senators Janice Marchman and Nick Hinrichsen.

Colorado has now answered the call from CoPIRG and a wide range of agriculture and repair organizations to ensure manufacturers of agricultural equipment make available all materials needed to repair tractors and combines.

Nationally, Colorado has become a leader in the Right to Repair space. Last year, Colorado passed a Right to Repair for wheelchairs bill, which went into effect in January.

As more of our stuff, including agricultural equipment like tractors and combines, runs on software, manufacturers are able to lock us out, undermining the repair marketplace and leading to longer delays and inflated repair bills.

Right to Repair ensures people have the freedom to get their stuff fixed from whomever they trust.
