March 11, 2014—Two members of Congress introduced Tuesday a bill to reduce federal vehicle repair costs by encouraging the use of remanufactured auto parts.

Rep. Gary Peters (D-Bloomfield Township) and Rep. James Lankford (R-Okla.) introduced the Federal Vehicle Repair Cost Savings Act of 2014 to reduce the nearly $1 billion in annual federal vehicle repair costs of 588,000 government vehicles, according to a report in the Detroit News.

The bill would require all heads of federal agencies to encourage the use of remanufactured parts when it lowers costs, maintain quality and performance and does not compromise safety.
