The Alaska House of Representatives approved SEMA-supported legislation (HB 375) to ensure consumers' choice of vehicle powerplants and fuel technology by preventing a state agency, county, or city from limiting access to internal-combustion engines.   

The bill is scheduled for a Senate Committee on Transportation hearing on Tuesday, May 7, 2024.

"HB 375 is a pro-consumer, pro-innovation and pro-business piece of legislation," said Colby Martin, SEMA’s director of state government affairs, during the hearing. "SEMA urges the senate to support this bill and allow the automotive industry to continue delivering the freedom and choice that Alaskans deserve." 

Alaska is the latest of several states seeking similar proposals. SEMA believes that Alaskans, not the government, should decide what vehicles are best for them and their families. This effort promotes consumer choice, fosters innovation and protects jobs.
