The Ohio House of Representatives passed SEMA-supported legislation prohibiting any state or local government unit from restricting the use or sale of motor vehicles based on the energy source used to power the motor vehicle, including internal combustion engines (ICEs).

The bill, H.B. 201, is now awaiting consideration by the Ohio Senate. Click here to send a letter to your local lawmaker requesting their support for the bill.

The enactment of this bill would be a major victory for proponents of consumer choice. SEMA believes Ohioans, not the government, should decide what vehicles are best for them and their families.
