The Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus
United States Senator Jon Tester takes a ride in a classic Cobra. Senator Tester is an avid auto enthusiast who enjoys restoring cars with his son when not in Washington.
For the past 14 years, a coalition of lawmakers who support the specialty-equipment aftermarket and recognize our industry’s positive economic impact has been growing on Capitol Hill.
The Congressional Automotive Performance and Motorsports Caucus is now nearing 100 members and pays tribute to America’s ever-growing love affair with the car and motorsports.
The caucus also helps SEMA develop lasting working relationships with U.S. representatives and senators who share a love for the automobile and are working to promote the growth and advancement of the auto hobby. SEMA began working with some caucus members when they served as state legislators, before their election to national office. In Washington, SEMA works in partnership with caucus members to amplify the message among national policymakers that the automotive performance industry is a vital engine in today’s economy, employing more than a million Americans and generating $32 billion in sales annually.
The legislators listed below have publicly shown their appreciation for our industry by joining the caucus. If you recognize your representative or senator, please consider taking a moment to thank them for their participation in the caucus. If you do not see your representatives on the list, consider contacting their offices to encourage them to join. Visit www.SEMA.org for information on how to contact your officials.
