The PARTS Act - introduced by Rep. Issa and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) - will effectively eliminate the monopoly auto manufacturers' have on design patents for auto-collision repair parts to 30 months - increasing market competition and ensuring that Americans will continue to have both access to, and choice of, a wide variety of competitively-priced exterior collision repair parts.
