Sales of specialty auto parts to off-road enthusiasts represent a large and growing segment of the industry. This same equipment is also popular with car owners who simply want to improve the look and performance of their street vehicle. Restrictive land-use policies, however, can have a negative impact on sales.
SEMA’s Government Affairs Office has created a layperson's guide to land-use issues that explains how federal laws like the Wilderness and Endangered Species Acts can close existing OHV roads and trails. It also identifies major interest groups that SEMA partners with to advocate for reasonable land-use policies that are not unnecessarily restrictive.
