Right to Repair surpasses last signature requirement early
The Right to Repair Coalition has achieved its final goal of attaining 20,000 voter signatures in its ballot campaign, well above the 11,000 required.
The final batch of certified signatures will be delivered to the Massachusetts secretary of state’s office well ahead of the early July, 2012, deadline. Obtaining these signatures was the final step in the signature gathering process required to put the issue on the ballot.
“We are thrilled that this consumer legislation has easily surpassed the final signature requirement, ahead of the deadline,” said Art Kinsman, spokesman of the Massachusetts Right to Repair Coalition.
The Right to Repair coalition has gathered a total of 126,000 signatures for its cause.
“We have heard from consumers about how pleased they are with the State Senate for acting on their behalf last month when it passed the Right to Repair legislation,” said Kinsman. “We are looking forward to final passage in the legislature or on the November ballot so that we can ensure cost savings and convenience for the Massachusetts motoring public.”
