North Dakota Bill That Sought to Restrict Vehicle Modifications Signed Into Law

Legislation that threatened to prohibit the modification of any motor vehicle that altered the manufacturer's original suspension, steering or brake system unless the state highway patrol issued an inspection certificate was amended to remove those restrictions and signed into law by Governor Jack Dalrymple. The new law now only provides for a study of the state’s transportation laws to be conducted between the 2011 and 2012 legislative sessions. This amended law represents a significant legislative victory for North Dakota enthusiasts and related businesses and is a direct result of SEMA’s vocal opposition.
