Support Needed: SEMA Testifies in Support of Georgia Bill for Clearer Vehicle Suspension Laws

By the SEMA Washington, D.C., office

The Georgia House Motor Vehicles Committee passed SEMA-supported legislation (SB 352) to modernize and improve the state's laws on vehicle suspension modifications, offering a clearer path for safe enjoyment, economic opportunity and responsible innovation. SEMA testified (watch below) in support of the bill in Atlanta on February 16, 2024. The bill now awaits consideration on the House floor. 

With its ambiguous 2-inch suspension height limit based on an unavailable "factory recommendation," the current law throws up roadblocks for all businesses involved. Uncertainty plagues vehicle owners, law enforcement and businesses in the aftermarket industry, creating fertile ground for legal challenges and stifling the sector's growth potential. 

SB 352 charts a clear course forward. It replaces the subjective 2-inch limit with an objective standard: measuring the vehicle's height from the ground to the frame. This simple change brings much-needed transparency and consistency to enforcement. 

With SEMA's continued support and advocacy, SB 352 has the potential to become a reality. Its passage would solidify Georgia's position as a welcoming destination for off-road enthusiasts and a leader in fostering a responsible and innovative automotive specialty equipment industry. SEMA members can join the advocacy efforts and participate in this positive change. Click here to send a letter to lawmakers in support of SB 352.
