“What the RPM Act does is expressly forbid the EPA from undertaking a regulation under the Clean Air Act on the motorsports industry. That’s all it does… My goal is to have the RPM Act voted on in the House of Representatives before the end of the summer.”  — Rep. Patrick McHenry

So far, 96 members of congress have co-sponsored the RPM Act, but the number needs to increase in order to help the bill move forward. SEMA members can help. Write your lawmakers and urge them to co-sponsor this bill and protect the future of motorsports today!
