Kansas House Approves Bill to Protect Vehicle Choice

ICEBy the SEMA Washington, D.C., office

The Kansas House of Representatives has approved SEMA-supported legislation to ensure consumers' choice of vehicle power plants and fuel by preventing a state agency, county or city from limiting access to internal combustion engines. 

The House Federal and State Affairs Committee recently held a hearing for the House's version of the bill (HB 2783), where it passed with overwhelming support. Following a vote by the full House, the bill received quick approval and now awaits consideration by the Kansas Senate. 

Kansas lawmakers passed a similar resolution last year, but this year's bill will codify this into law.  

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.
