SEMA has decided to abandon a plan to offer a compromise to exhaust noise legislation.
Working with members of the legislature, SEMA has decided to abandon a plan to offer a compromise to exhaust noise legislation. The SEMA-opposed measure originally sought to prohibit motor-vehicle repair facilities from modifying an exhaust system to “produce noise in excess of OEM stock decibel levels.” The bill carried a fine of $10,000 for each violation. The parties determined that there was insufficient time in the current legislative session to gain a consensus among industry and hobbyist stakeholders, which would enable a compromise to be enacted into law. This action essentially kills the bill for 2014.
