There are several here who race and this involves the motor sports bunch SEMA is a group spokesman for all the OEM and after market manufacturers

EMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The U.S. Senate joined the House of Representatives in reintroducing the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act of 2017 (RPM Act) earlier this week. The bipartisan bill (S.203), introduced by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and co-sponsored by 14 Senators, ensures that transforming street cars into race cars used exclusively in competition does not violate the Clean Air Act.

2017 marks a new session of Congress. Bills that did not become law at the end of 2016, like the RPM Act, must be reintroduced for consideration. Now that both the House and Senate have reintroduced the RPM Act, SEMA is calling on the entire enthusiast community and industry to take action and contact their legislators. Even if you have already sent a letter, the new Congress means that new letters are needed. It’s easy and only takes a minute. Use the form at www.sema.org/rpm.

“SEMA extends its thanks to Senator Burr and the other co-sponsors, and looks forward to working with Congress and the Trump administration to enact the RPM Act into law this year,” said SEMA President and CEO Chris Kersting. “We call on the entire enthusiast community to again reach out to their federal lawmakers to request support for the bill. The RPM Act is the only solution that will ensure that this time-honored tradition and livelihood for millions of Americans will be preserved for generations to come.”

When the RPM Act was first introduced in 2016, racing enthusiasts and Americans working in the motorsports parts industry flooded Congress with nearly 200,000 letters in support of the bill. The overwhelming response prompted more than 140 members of Congress to join as bill co-sponsors. However, the shortened election year schedule did not permit sufficient time for passage of the bill by the previous Congress.

You may be one of the thousands of supporters who contacted your legislators about the RPM Act in 2016. We appreciate your efforts and are in need of your support once again.  

Tell Congress to pass the RPM Act of 2017, and save racing from government threat!

If we collectors and hobbyists have the opportunity to assist the President in "draining the swamp" by shutting off the water, WHY NOT?  It only takes minutes to post an opinion.  And - should we be successful - it leaves the new administration free to accomplish other important goals.

Here's the deal guys.  IF the RPM Act should NOT pass, the EPA can and will pursue, as empowered by fiat, the identify of and removal from the operational fleet any vehicle manufactured with a government-mandated emissions system; if that system has been modified or removed.

So if you drive - or have built - ANY VEHICLE manufactured after 1970 that was, as built, equipped with ANY KIND of emissions system; and you've added headers, an aftermarket exhaust system, or a manifold and better carburetor or an improved-performance distributor, you are liable for such action.  And this even though your vehicle passes STATE emissions code, because this will be a FEDERAL mandate.

I therefore urge each of you to communicate with your congressmen and senators to vote passage of the RPM Act.  Because if this does not occur, the additional cost to U.S. taxpayers will be yet another massive federal bureaucracy, populated with self-interested bottom feeders.

And that ain't gonna help "drain the swamp".

Aaron, I don't know what your worried about, Trump has already prevented one Mexican from coming to the US (their President... for a meeting)! LOL 
There just seems to be no end to the ridiculous rhetoric on an hourly basis since this election, I just read a news release this morning that Cali says given all they contribute to the union the country will collapse if they leave. Anymore statements like that and I will have to pull on an adult diaper before checking the daily news, all this and dealing with the "Fruit-Fly" that is in charge of this country is becoming a challenge for the sane people of this day and age.



Be careful when you follow the MASSES......sometimes the "M" is silent.

Today Ca is going to discuss the idea of being  a santurary state, this means all of Ca would not turn an illegal into ICE for deportation when they commit a crime,we will continue to coddle the illegal.
What a bunch of morons.
