Legislation that adopts the SEMA-model legislation that would allow the use, sale, alteration or installation of car mufflers that meet a 95-decibel noise limit was introduced. Under the current law, no person can sell, alter or install a muffler that will noticeably increase a vehicle’s noise. This bill provides an opportunity for vehicle hobbyists to install and use aftermarket modified exhaust systems that meet an objective decibel limit under a fair and predictable test. The bill is currently in the House Transportation Committee and the Energy and the Environment Committee.
