Right to Repair?

Here is an article discussing a proposed law in Nebraska "that would require companies, whether they are in the tech sector or not, to make their service manuals, diagnostic tools, and parts available to consumers and repair shops—and not just select suppliers."

Right now I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing to have as a law. As a general statement, we seem to have a lot of laws. More thinking required on my part.  Is there really a "right to repair"? I guess I could argue both sides of the coin. There's propriety/intellectual/patent considerations, safety, etc. Many electronic devices today aren't built to be repaired. Just cheaper to replace them.
