After a lengthy debate Saturday, the Washington State House of Representatives passed the Fair Repair Act (HB 1392) by a vote of 58-38. The bill, sponsored by Representative Mia Gregerson, would require manufacturers to provide consumers and independent repair shops with the parts, tools, and information necessary to fix electronic devices. The legislation aims to make device repair more accessible and affordable and reduce the e-waste generated when consumers have to throw out fixable devices.

Representative Gregerson and other supporters successfully defended the bill against numerous weakening amendments during Saturday’s floor session, passing a Right to Repair policy out of the House for the first time, delivering a big win for the Right to Repair movement.

The bill will now head to the Senate, where it will have until March 29 to pass out of its policy committee. You can read our statement on the Fair Repair Act’s passage here.
