Grand Rapids Press: U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga promote rebuilt parts for federal fleet

KENTWOOD, MI - Taxpayers will save money and Michigan companies that rebuild automotive and truck parts will benefit from legislation sponsored by a bipartisan team of U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich. and U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Zeeland.

"Encouraging the federal government to use less expensive remanufactured auto parts when repairing their vehicles helps save taxpayers money and supports remanufacturing suppliers in Michigan and across the country," said Peters, who appeared at North America Fuel Systems Remanufacturing on Tuesday, March 31.

The "Federal Vehicle Repair Cost Savings Act" will also save energy, said Peters, who said North American Fuel Systems Remanufacturing recently added a third shift to meet the demand for its products.

Peters, who became friends with Huizenga when they sat on the House Finance Committee before he was elected to the U.S. Senate last year, said the proposal stands to benefit Michigan's manufacturing sector.
