Many, if not most, car hobbyists do not like being involved in the political process. The ever-increasing legislation that affects the car hobby has forced us to become more politically involved to insure the preservation of our hobby.
- We will monitor all legislation so we can alert car hobbyists of any bill that will impact our hobby.
- And as always we will oppose any measure that would adversely effect the car hobby
- We are in favor of and asked that this bill be introduced:
SB 586 Exhaust system in good working order; exclusion. (Excludes antique motor vehicles, defined as motor vehicles 25 years old or older, from the requirement that such vehicle be equipped with an exhaust system in good working order and in constant operation to prevent excessive or unusual levels of noise. Current law excludes antique motor vehicles manufactured prior to 1950 from such requirements.
SB 586 has passed and been signed into law by the governor. It will become law on July 1, 2018.
