Reps. Gary Peters (D-MI) and James Lankford (R-OK) have introduced a bill called The Federal Vehicle Repair Cost Savings Act (H.R. 4056). It would encourage federal agencies to use remanufactured auto parts when they are, in a given repair instance, cheaper and easy enough to obtain, meaning they do not hold up the repair of the vehicle.
This makes a lot of sense – reman parts are less expensive than OEM parts and better for the environment. This begs the question: do we really need an act of Congress for federal agencies to do the right thing?
