Kansas Holds Hearing on Bill to Protect Vehicle Choice

By the SEMA Washington, D.C., office

Kansas has introduced SEMA-supported legislation to ensure consumers' choice of vehicle powerplants and fuel by preventing a state agency, county or city from limiting access to internal combustion engines. Kansas lawmakers passed a resolution last year, but this year's bill will codify this into law.  

The House Federal & State Affairs Committee recently held a hearing for the House's version of the bill (H.B. 2783). SEMA was among several groups that testified in support of the proposal (watch below), and the bill now awaits a committee vote. 

SEMA believes that Kansans, not the government, should decide what vehicles are best for them and their families. This effort promotes consumer choice, fosters innovation and protects jobs. The Senate's version of the bill (SB 471) awaits consideration by the Committee on Federal and State Affairs.
