The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports (RPM) Act
The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act (RPM Act, H.R. 5434) was reintroduced in the House by U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) and cosponsored by Rep. Raul Ruiz (D-Calif.), along with five other original sponsors: Reps. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Gil Cisneros (D-Calif.), and Michael Burgess (R-Texas).
The bi-partisan RPM Act would ensure that converting motor vehicles into competition-only vehicles remains legal. Street motorcycles are considered motor vehicles under the federal Clean Air Act.
The RPM Act states that it was the clear intent of Congress when passing and amending the Clean Air Act that motor vehicles, including motorcycles, used solely for competition would be exempt from the Clean Air Act’s prohibitions against modifying emission control devices.
The American Motorcyclist Association supports the bill and its protections for amateur and professional racing enthusiasts.
