The threat to racing isn’t over. SEMA encourages members of the racing community to continue to tell Congress to support the RPM Act by sharing these Facebook and Twitter posts on your own social media platforms.
Late last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it will withdraw a proposed rule that threatened the future of racing and modification equipment.
Earlier this year, nearly 170,000 racing enthusiasts and industry stakeholders rallied to tell the White House to stop an overreaching regulation from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act is gaining Congressional support as race enthusiasts and industry stakeholders flood lawmakers’ offices on Capitol Hill with letters urging them to support the legislation.
The issue that sparked nearly 170,000 individuals in the racing industry to sign a White House petition earlier this year is NOT yet resolved. Even if the EPA removed the proposal in question, Congressional action is the only way to guarantee that street vehicles can continue to be modified for the track. Urge your legislators to support the RPM Act now: www.sema.org/rpm.
Action, support for congressional bill more important than ever. ACT NOW!
SEMA recently submitted additional comments to the EPA urging the agency to withdraw its proposed rule that prohibits the conversion of street cars into vehicles used solely for competition.
Attorneys general from eight states recently voiced their concerns about a proposed rule that would “expand the (EPA)’s statutory jurisdiction under the Clean Air Act” to prohibit the conversion of street cars into dedicated racecars, noting that it was “contrary to the law and would reverse decades of practice by the (EPA).”
Racing enthusiasts across the country continue to sound the alarm on EPA overreach and call on Congress to pass the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act of 2016.” But don’t take our word for it. See what others are saying and doing.
If you haven’t contacted your legislators to support the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act of 2016”, visit www.sema.org/rpm today. A cell phone and one minute is all it takes to support the Congressional bill that will ensure that street vehicles can continued to be modified for the track.
