chucktoo Posted March 30, 2006 Share Posted March 30, 2006 I received the message below from a friend in a local car club. There's legislation about to be sent to the floor of the legislature banning aftermarket exhaust systems. Please send emails or make phone calls to Representative Golden to voice your opposition. We don't need any more restrictive legislation like this here. URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (IMPORTANT UPDATE) Massachusetts Bill to Ban the Sale/Installation of Aftermarket Exhaust Systems: Rep. Tom Golden Needs to Hear From YOU!!! A bill (H.B. 2011) 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” is on the verge of being sent to the floor of the Massachusetts State House of Representatives for a vote by all representatives. The bill is currently pending in the Committee on Third Reading. The chairman of this committee, Rep. Tom Golden (Rep.ThomasGolden@hou.state.ma.us) needs to hear from you! We Urge You to Contact Rep. Tom Golden by Phone or E-mail Immediately to Request His Opposition to H.B. 2011 State Representative Tom Golden Telephone: 617/722-2410 E-mail: Rep.ThomasGolden@hou.state.ma.us H.B. 2011 ignores the fact that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions. H.B. 2011 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. 2011 would make it difficult for hobbyists to replace factory exhaust systems with more durable, better performing options. Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at email@example.com Forward a copy of this ALERT to all interested persons. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter!
