URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (MA Joint Transportation Hearing Information)

It's not the big gov't that bothers me, it's the BAD gov't. And this one puts the "***" back in "Massachusetts".

Here's the relevant contact info for anyone interested in averting this.

URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (Hearing Information)


Massachusetts Bill to Ban the Use/Sale of Aftermarket Exhaust Systems to be Considered by Joint Transportation Committee on Tues., Oct. 6


A bill (H.B. 3332) to ban the “use and sale of any exhaust pipe that increases the sound emission of any vehicle including motorcycles” will be considered by the Massachusetts Joint Transportation Committee on Tuesday, October 6th. Legislation (H.B. 4027) to require the incorporation of noise level testing into the vehicle inspection process will also be considered. H.B. 4027 does not define a noise level limit, but allows it to be determined by the registry.

We Urge You to Contact the Members of the Joint Transportation Committee (List Below) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 3332 and H.B. 4027


For those interested in attending the hearing to voice opposition, the committee will meet on Tues., Oct. 6 at the following address and time:

State House, Room B-1

Boston, Massachusetts

October 6, 2007

11:00 a.m.


·H.B. 3332 ignores the fact that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions.

·H.B. 3332 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.

·H.B. 3332 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. 3332 would make it difficult for hobbyists to replace factory exhaust systems with more durable, better performing options.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Massachusetts Joint Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their opposition to H.B. 3332. Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org. Thank you for your assistance.
