FRAMINGHAM – The League of Women Voters of Framingham is holding a Zoom meeting to hear from representatives on both sides of ballot question 1, the Right to Repair, on Saturday, September 12 at 4 p.m. via Zoom.
We will also be doing this event live on the LWV Framingham Facebook page, and this event will be broadcast live on AF-TV.
Question 1 (2020) would require manufacturers that sell motor vehicles equipped with telematics systems to install a standardized open data platform beginning with model year 2022. Vehicle owners could then access telematics system data through a mobile device application and then give consent for independent repair facilities to access that data and send commands to the system for repair, maintenance, and diagnostic testing.
Currently, the 2013 “right to repair law” exempts telematics systems from wireless accessibility by vehicle owners and independent repair facilities.
Joining us for this discussion will be a Tommy Hickey from MassRighttoRepair.org, who are supporting passage of this ballot question, and Katrina Gaddis from Solomon McCown & Cence who will be representing the opposition to the question.
We will be taking questions in advance via email, and also will take questions during the event via the chat box on Facebook Live and on Zoom. All attendees will be muted.
We hope you will join us for this informative event.
Registration is required and registration will be closed at 2 p.m. on the day of the event.
