MIC Symposium 22: Government Relations Update

MIC gives an election recap and legislative/regulatory outlook for 2023 on Dec. 15.

The midterm elections will affect you, your company and all of powersports in the year ahead and beyond. 

But what should you expect? The Republicans have taken the U.S. House of Representatives. The Democrats have increased their hold on the U.S. Senate. Across the states, there are new governors and new legislatures.

  • Looming are new regulations and reporting requirements for the PFAS chemicals used in many of the products we make and sell every day.
  • Tariffs on Chinese imports still threaten to raise prices and drop sales on parts, accessories and apparel.
  • Right-to-repair bills could create huge service and warranty problems and even lead to damage for brand reputations.
  • Members of the Biden cabinet will still have a tremendous impact on what happens with our nation’s highways and with public land access.

Politics matters to the bottom line for each and every company in the powersports industry. These issues matter to riders and drivers everywhere. So, you want to know what’s going on in Washington, D.C. and in states from coast to coast.

Scott Schloegel, the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) senior vice president at the Government Relations Office just outside Washington will be online and will summarize it all for you in one well-packed presentation that should not be missed. 

Register now for this Dec. 15 webinar at 10 a.m. PT that’s so important, the MIC is making it free for anyone in powersports.
