Nevertheless, we still must persist.Wrap-up report on the Fair Repair Bill. The session ended without getting a floor vote in the Senate. There is significant interest, but the clock just ran out.

1) We went from standstill to within a hairsbreadth of getting a vote in just week or so. That groundwork remains in place for us to take up the issue immediately on Jan 1.

2) We had an impressive amount of outreach to a whole new set of legislators. New York saw a lot of turnover, which made our work harder. There are new staff on the committee too, which means that these people need to be educated on the issues. But thanks to new allies, and active support from our friends at Repair Cafe, we made a lot of headway into building up a wide range of supporters.

3) A few sticky wickets remain. We have some legislators who seem to think that repair is not all that important and we should just defer to manufacturers. We need too find a way to work around those obstacles -- and that means more support, and more deep support from our champions.

4) 2020 is looking pretty good, so stay tuned. We will plan some activities for the fall so we can be ready to go in January. We have been informed that we are going to get attention and support right at the start of the session.
