RPM Act Surpasses 100 Congressional Co-sponsors as Race Enthusiasts, Industry Members Demand Action

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The RPM Act of 2017 reached an important milestone as the House bill surpassed 100 co-sponsors earlier this week, meaning nearly one-fourth of the entire House of Representatives supports the bill. The Senate bill is also showing a strong, bipartisan performance with nearly a quarter of the entire Senate signing on as co-sponsors. Gaining momentum with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including key members on the bills’ committees of jurisdiction, is critical to moving the bill through the legislative process and closer to a final vote.

This important progress is a direct result of our industry and community’s swift action. We have sent more than 45,000 letters to the new Congress since the new letter-writing effort started in January. Thank you to those who have sent a letter! While this is an important milestone, our work is far from over. We need to keep the pressure on Congress to push the RPM Act across the finish line!

That’s why we need you to add your name to the effort to save our racecars. Hearing from you—a constituent and member of the motorsports community—lets lawmakers know that the RPM Act demands their attention and action.

Tell your lawmakers to support this critical bill using the form at www.sema.org/rpm. It’s easy and only takes a minute. Even if you sent a letter in 2016, the new Congress means that new letters are needed. And don’t forget to tell your friends and family to join the effort, too. Every letter counts.  

Together we can save our racecars and protect the future of motorsports! Visit www.sema.org/rpm today!
