URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Hawaii Bill to Ban Most Aftermarket Exhaust Systems Dies as Legislature Adjourns
Legislation (H.B. 2209) that would have required official inspection stations to test vehicles to determine if their exhaust systems “emit noise noticeably greater than that emitted by the vehicle as equipped from the factory” died when the legislature adjourned for the year. The bill had not been given committee consideration. H.B. 2209 unfairly provided no objective standard by which vehicles could be tested and did not provide inspection stations with decibel readings on factory-installed exhaust systems.
Thank you to all who participated in opposing this bill.
