Massachusetts Aftermarket Exhaust Law (H.B. 1722)

URGENT! PLEASE READ!
THIS AFFECTS ALL OF US!
URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)

It's Not Dead Yet!

Massachusetts Bill to Ban the Sale/Installation of Aftermarket Exhaust Systems Continues to Move through Legislature Although we thought we had successfully stalled this bill in the Committee on Public Safety earlier this year, a bill (H.B. 1722) to ban the sale or installation of "an exhaust system which has been modified in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise emitted by the exhaust" continues to move though the Massachusetts Legislature. It has not been revised from last year's version and remains an extremely damaging piece of legislation.

After months of inactivity, H.B. 1722 was recently approved by the Massachusetts House Rules Committee and has now been re-referred to the House Steering, Policy and Scheduling Committee. If recommended for passage by this committee, the bill will be scheduled for a vote on the floor of the Massachusetts House of Representatives. It is important that we act in force again in order to (finally) defeat this bill before it has the opportunity to progress further.

Call, E-Mail or Fax the Members of the Steering, Policy and Scheduling Committee (List Attached) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 1722!

I will be writing my own letter on behalf of my store, customers, and fellow companies, I'm asking that V6 Performance pulls together, and emails every single person below a properly written formal letter.

The arguments remain the same, cut and paste this to them if you like:

* H.B. 1722 ignores the fact that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions. Increasing gas mileage in these already tough times, with high gas prices!

* H.B. 1722 does not supply law enforcement with a clear standard to enforce, allowing them to make subjective judgments on whether or not a modified exhaust system is in violation. A standard noise limit (dB test) should be established.

* H.B. 1722 fails to recognize that aftermarket exhaust systems offer increased performance, which can make a vehicle safer by improving its ability to merge, pass, travel uphill, etc.

* H.B. 1722 would make it difficult for hobbyists to replace factory exhaust systems with more durable, better performing options (stainless steel, titanium).

Please call or e-mail the members of the Steering and Policy Committee (See List Below) today to oppose this legislation! This bill tramples on the rights of ALL vehicle enthusiasts in Massachusetts.
