ARLINGTON, Va.

The following statement is attributed to Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, regarding House passage of the E-Warranty Act of 2015, which the Senate passed in July:

“We applaud the House for its swift action to pass the E-Warranty Act of 2015. As part of technology manufacturers’ growing commitment to reducing their paper footprint and consumers’ growing preference to digitize documents, it makes perfect sense to modernize the Federal Trade Commission’s regulations to allow for the online posting of manufacturers’ warranties. We thank Senators Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Representatives Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) and Dave Loebsack (D-IA) for crafting common-sense legislation, and we look forward to President Obama signing this bill into law.”
