Utah Bill To Ban Aftermarket Exhaust Systems - Sema Action Network - Web Exclusive

Feb 25, 2010

A new bill introduced in Utah (S.B. 106) would ban the use of most aftermarket exhaust products in the state. The bill now moves to the floor of the Senate for a vote by all members. Under this new substitute bill, all vehicles will be required to be equipped with an exhaust system that is "installed by the original manufacturer of the vehicle and is not modified; or meets specifications equivalent to the muffler installed by the original manufacturer of the vehicle and is not modified."

While we feel that we've established a sizeable opposition, the bill has already been passed in committee by a narrow margin and is moving to the Senate. We would appreciate any help you can give us in raising awareness of this bill among enthusiasts. This bill could have widespread ramifications for both the hobby and the industry in Utah.

We Urge You to Contact All Utah State Senators Immediately to Request Their Opposition to S.B. 106

• S.B. 106 ignores the fact that aftermarket exhaust systems are designed to make vehicles run more efficiently without increasing emissions.

• S.B. 106 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.

• S.B. 106 fails to recognize that aftermarket exhaust systems offer increased performance, which can make a vehicle safer by improving its ability to merge, pass, travel uphill, etc.

• S.B. 106 would make it difficult for hobbyists to replace factory exhaust systems with more durable, better performing options.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact all Utah Senators immediately by phone or e-mail to request their opposition to S.B. 106.
