ARLINGTON, Va.

The following statement can be attributed to Veronica O’Connell, vice president of government and political affairs, Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, regarding the E-Warranty Act of 2015, which is scheduled for mark-up today during the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation executive session:

“We applaud and thank Senators Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) for introducing this bipartisan legislation to modernize warranty requirements by allowing manufacturers to post warranties online. The E-Warranty Act of 2015 is a common sense bill that directs the Federal Trade Commission to give manufacturers the option to meet legal notice requirements by posting warranties on their companies’ websites—reducing paper usage, helping the environment, cutting costs and providing consumers easy access to product warranties. We urge broad, bipartisan support for this bill and quick action by the Senate.”
