RPM Act to be Introduced

The Motorcycle Riders Foundation was invited to participate in a working group with the Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) and a host of other organizations about the future of the Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act (RPM Act).  As we have reported in the past, we were unsure if this legislation would be introduced in the 116th Congress since the political appetite has changed on the hill.  During the last Congress, the House version was able to gain 150 cosponsors but never made it to the floor for a vote, and the Senate version with its 39 cosponsors suffered the same fate in the waning days of 2018.

The MRF anticipates that this legislation will be introduced in the coming weeks before Congress adjourns for their August recess.  Please be ready for any future calls to action that may find their way to your inbox.

There’s more from the MRF, which will be revealed in the Bikernet Weekly News on Thursday in Bandit’s Cantina. Don’t miss it.–Bandit
