Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act (RPM Act)
A Congressional bill to protect the future of motorsports hits an important milestone but Congressional consideration is still pending.
The SEMA Action Network (SAN) is hitting the road to let the motorsports community know about the “Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act”—the Congressional bill that clarifies that street vehicles may continue to be converted into race cars used solely on the track.
June is a critical month for the RPM Act. The House Energy and Commerce Committee must pass the RPM Act before the full Congress can vote on it. Don’t let Congress leave for its month-long summer recess without taking Committee action first. Contact your lawmakers today and urge them to act now!
The visit highlights the importance of the RPM Act to business and the local economy.
Covering more than 1,500 total miles, the seven-day, seven-city Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour will attract more than 4,500 collector cars and grab the attention of more than 75,000 spectators.
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.
The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act (RPM Act) is a Congressional bill that, if passed, will ensure that street vehicles can continue to be converted into racecars.
