How does a bill become a law? That question is like someone asking how to build a winning race car; it’s a little bit more complicated than it may first appear. There are several ways to get it done, and it’s certainly harder to do than one would hope. It also takes more time and more money than you initially thought.   

A bill, just like a race car, starts with an idea. The Recognizing the Protection of Motorsports Act, known as the RPM Act, started as a simple idea: to protect Americans’ right to convert street vehicles into dedicated race cars and the motorsports industry’s ability to sell products that enable racers to compete.   

This video explains the paths a bill can take to become a law and the possible obstacles along the way.  


If you support the RPM Act and want to see this critical bill become a law, PRI urges you to share this videowith several of your friends, write letters to your lawmakers telling them to pass the bill, and do everything in your power to keep the RPM Act top of mind until it becomes a law.   

If you love racing, the RPM Act is critical to protect Americans’ right to convert street vehicles into dedicated race cars, and the motorsports parts industry’s ability to sell products that enable racers to compete.
