OLYMPIA—House and Senate committees will hear public testimony this week on right to repair legislation sponsored by Rep. Mia Gregerson (D-SeaTac) and Sen. Derek Stanford (D-Bothell). Under HB 1392 (SB 5464), Washingtonians would have the right to repair their own electronic devices rather than relying only on manufacturers and their authorized technicians. This would help Washingtonians save money and cut electronic waste. Information on the hearings is below.
- Senate Environment, Energy & Technology Committee: Tuesday, Jan. 31, 1:30 p.m. Watch on TVW.
- House Consumer Protection & Business Committee: Wednesday, Feb. 1, 1:30 p.m. Watch on TVW.
