The bill has reached a total of 28 supporters in Congress and bipartisan support continues to grow.

A new group of bipartisan cosponsors have received recognition from Auto Care Association, MEMA Aftermarket Suppliers, CAR Coalition, and SEMA for their support of the the REPAIR Act.

First signed by the bipartisan team of Congressman Neal Dunn (R-FL), Congressman Brendan Boyle (D-PA), Congressman Warren Davidson (R-OH), and Congresswoman Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (D-WA), eight additional members signed on in support of the REPAIR Act in April

Another 16 members of Congress signed the REPAIR Act in May, bringing the total number of supporters to 28.
