The Truth About PACs: Everything Wheel and Tire Members Need to Know

By Ashley Reyes

WTCThe government plays a critical role in any industry. Businesses are impacted by subsidies, taxes and regulations. Elected officials often determine future laws. The wheel and tire industry is not immune to the impact of government.

From tax credits for small businesses to laws that impact the way wheel and tire products are made, distributed and marketed, and even the impact of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) overreach, the wheel and tire industry is impacted by government actions. The current RPM Act is a perfect reason for you to understand how this affects the wheel and tire industry.  

SEMA Wheel & Tire Council (WTC) members are invited to learn how they can work with elected officials to help their businesses, and why it’s important to fight for the passage of the RPM Act now during a live webinar, March 17, at 12:00 p.m. (PDT).  

Dan Ingber, SEMA vice president of SEMA government and legal affairs, and John Hotchkis, president at Hotchkis Performance and SEMA Political Action Committee (PAC) chair, will explain:  

  • What the SEMA PAC is.
  • How the SEMA PAC helps to ensure that elected officials support our industry.
  • What the new SEMA Individual Membership is, and how it helps defend your automotive rights.
  • The importance of bills such as the RPM Act, and why it matters to wheel and tire companies.

While you’re busy managing your business, SEMA’s government affairs office in Washington, D.C., is advocating to protect the industry and your business. This webinar will guide you on state and federal regulations, and the opportunity to make your voice heard on relevant issues that may affect your business.
