U.S. House of Representatives Committee Schedules Hearing for RPM Act

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment has scheduled a September 13 hearing to discuss several bills to reduce regulatory burdens impacting small businesses. The hearing will review the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act of 2017 (H.R. 350), which would clarify that the Clean Air Act allows motor vehicles to be converted into race vehicles used solely for competition. The RPM Act provides clarity to motorsports parts businesses and protects racers’ ability to purchase the parts and equipment that enable them to compete.

The RPM Act of 2017 needs your support. Even if you wrote to Congress in 2016, SEMA urges all race fans and businesses to take action again. Go to to support the RPM Act of 2017 and secure the future of racing today!
