USTMA Legislative Priorities for 2024

With the second session of the 118th Congress underway, the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) and our member companies continue our efforts to engage with you and your staff to advance road safety, tire innovation, environmental stewardship and manufacturing jobs in the U.S

USTMA supports six key policy priorities for the expansion of advanced technologies and responsible infrastructure:

  •  New rules from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for consumer tire information and performance standards and modernization of tire testing regulations; 
  • The expansion of sustainable and circular infrastructure solutions for scrap tires; 
  • Research to identify mitigation solutions for roadway runoff to protect stormwater;   
  • Creation of domestic manufacturing jobs for production of retreated tires and promoting their use for commercial vehicles; 
  • Ensuring fair, equal and standardized access to digital vehicle data and infrastructure assets; and   
  • Developing domestic sources of sustainable natural rubber.
