Congressional support for the bipartisan Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2021 (RPM Act), H.R. 3281, has continued to build in the days leading up to members of the U.S. House of Representatives leaving Washington, D.C., until mid-September. Letters in support of the RPM Act from racers and members of the motorsports’ parts industry to lawmakers in Congress asking them to cosponsor the bill continue to be a key factor in expanding support for the legislation.
The RPM Act now has 96 bipartisan co-sponsors, as five members of the House recently agreed to publicly support the bill, including U.S. Representatives Jim Banks (R-IN), Larry Bucshon (R-IN), Dusty Johnson (R-SD), Carlos Gimenez (R-FL) and Victoria Spartz (R-IN).
While the House of Representatives is out of session until September 20, members of Congress will hold town hall meetings and meet with their constituents. Local meetings provide a great opportunity for you to influence your members of Congress. To identify your U.S. House member, visit Action Center. You can sign up on their website to receive weekly email updates, including information about events in your lawmaker’s congressional district.
The RPM Act must be enacted into law to guarantee your right to modify street cars, trucks and motorcycles into dedicated race vehicles, and ensure that industry can offer parts that enable racers to compete. It is imperative that lawmakers continue to be reminded of the importance of passing the RPM Act.
