Legislative Success: When Preparation and Opportunity Meet 

 
  The list of current state legislation features all active bills being tracked nationwide. An interactive U.S. map indicates the jurisdictions with the most pending initiatives.
 

The closing of the 2016 legislative session has brought yet another slew of triumphs for car enthusiasts in states across the country. Get the scoop in the “Legislative Front Lines” feature of this issue. The list of victories is proof that coordinated action from the SAN has a direct impact on the decisions of legislators. Without your contribution to these efforts, this list of victories would shrink.

Behind every automotive win is a long road. The process begins with reviewing new proposals nationwide. SAN staff performs exhaustive daily searches for bills that could affect our hobby as they are introduced in all 50 states. The full list of bills we are currently tracking is posted on the SAN website.

A new online tool was introduced to the SAN website this year to keep the automotive community more in tune with current state proposals than ever before. Visit the “Legislation” menu on www.semaSAN.com and select the “State” link. The list of current state legislation features all active bills being tracked nationwide. An interactive U.S. map indicates the jurisdictions with the most pending initiatives, as well as those with the least. Simply select a state and click on an item of interest for detailed information. The display includes the bill’s full text, a summary, sponsors, current status and more. Staying up-to-date on matters in your state is now just a few clicks away.

While the process of monitoring a bill’s journey may begin with staff in Washington, D.C., your efforts are what keeps our beloved hobby thriving in the midst of constant threats! Special thanks to the SAN members who weighed in with their lawmakers on issues throughout the year. As the legislatures re-open in 2017, be prepared by using these new legislative tracking tools to stay informed. If you have any questions, the SAN’s Research Manager, Matthew Donovan, can be reached at mattd@sema.org or 202-783-6007 x38.
