The first right-to-repair bill in the U.S. has been passed in the Colorado Statehouse. The move puts Colorado in opposition with John Deere and other equipment manufacturers who have signed agreements not to pursue that kind of legislation. The bill, titled The Consumer Right to Repair Agricultural Equipment Act, is now with the state’s governor, Jared Polis, who has ten days to sign it.

If passed, the legislation would require John Deere and other manufacturers to share access to all materials farmers and shop owners need to repair tractors, combines and other implements. While Colorado is the first state to pass such legislation, similar bills exist in 11 different states.
