Why the Government in Your Garage Is a Good Thing

More than 700 state legislators strong, the State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus is called upon to help confront overly restrictive legislation that seeks to prohibit vehicle modification.

In its daily efforts to promote and protect the auto hobby, SEMA continues to partner with state lawmakers from across the country through the State Automotive Enthusiast Leadership Caucus. Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the caucus is a bipartisan group of state lawmakers whose common thread is a love and appreciation for automobiles.

Supported by SEMA’s government affairs office in Washington, D.C., the caucus has been instrumental in raising the motor-vehicle hobby and specialty-equipment industry’s profile in state legislatures and in the public’s eyes. Working in state capitals, these legislators are frequently called upon to oppose overly restrictive legislation that seeks to prohibit vehicle modification. It proactively protects the hobby by improving existing motor-vehicle statutes and creating new programs to safeguard and expand it.
