The Mass. ballot questions

1. Availability of motor vehicle repair data

A yes vote would require auto manufacturers to make available diagnostic and repair information through a universal software system that could be used by dealers and independent shops. A similar law was passed by the Legislature this year, after the question had already made the ballot. Because that law is already on the books, most of the original supporters of the initiative are asking voters to reject the question, to avoid confusion. AAA supports the ballot question, because it would make more information available to all consumers.
