Michigan House Passes Parts Certification Legislation

Lawmakers in Michigan have passed legislation amending the state’s law governing operation of automotive repair shops to include the provision that shops will not be allowed to:

“Replace a part with a part that does not meet or exceed standards recognized as OEM comparable quality as verified by a nationally recognized automotive parts testing agency.”

The new language was passed overwhelmingly by the state’s House of Representatives, and now moves to the Senate for debate.
