Bill in Congress encourages use of remanufactured auto parts
A bill has been introduced in Congress to encourage the use of remanufactured auto parts in federal vehicles. Federal agencies now spend nearly $1 billion per year on maintenance and repair of their 588,000 vehicles.
The bill, the Federal Vehicle Repair Cost Savings Act of 2014, was introduced by Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) and Rep. James Lankford (R-Okla.) to reduce taxpayer burden, promote conservation and support the U.S. auto supply industry. The bill requires all heads of federal agencies to encourage the use of remanufactured parts when doing so lowers costs, maintains quality and performance and does not compromise safety.
The measure is supported by the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association.Download Bulletin PDF
