Has anyone from michigan seen this proposed law?

http://echo.bluehornet.com/hostedema...d&ei=NYr8q9NtN

Have any of you seen this, and is it real? If it is, we need people out in full force voting against it!

What would this world be without loud exhausts!?!?!?

I haven't seen this, but that would be insane... so many cars/trucks have aftermarket exhaust systems here in Michigan, I really hope this gets thrown out.

I think the proposed law could be considered reasonable but the penalty is way out of wack.

Florida has had exhaust laws for years. Anything but OEM exhaust is illegal, but is never really enforced. Don't loose sleep over it, no big deal.

It's this mentality that has been letting our rights be voted away with one "no big deal" at a time.

Has anybody read the actual bill, and not an email about it?

Not saying I don't trust SEMA, but a little context goes a long way.

I've long thought it was funny that they're called "lawmakers" and not "freedommakers."

Seriously, their very job description suggests that they need to sit around and create new laws. By creating new laws, they get to appear as if they're being busy and "working for the people."

We need more lawmakers involved in deconstructing existing laws...

If I'm reading this correctly, it states that it is illegal for a business to modify the exhaust. Doesn't say anything about Billy Bob doing it, nor actually having mods.

Yes it does:

"(4) A person, either acting for himself or herself or as the
agent or employee of another, shall not sell, install, or replace a
muffler or exhaust part that causes the motor vehicle to which the
muffler or exhaust part is attached to exceed the noise limits
established by this act or a rule promulgated under this act.
(5) A person shall not modify, repair, replace, or remove a
part of an exhaust system causing the motor vehicle to which the
system is attached to produce noise in excess of the levels
established by this act, or operate a motor vehicle so altered on a
street or highway."

I believe New Hampshire already has similar laws, but without the bankrupting penalty.

Maybe this is how the Libs expect to pay up the Detroit Bankruptcy.

You here that Johnny, load up the truck with all of those stock exhaust systems we replaced last year, we're going to Michigan and opening up a reinstall your stock exhaust shop. The muffler guys are going to get money on both ends now, LOL

Its not always about ground shaking changes. Sometimes, its just about spreading the word. Voicing a concern...its not about storming the capital with pitch forks.

I'd rather at least be AWARE rather than know nothing at all...see the difference now?

Everyone likes to think theres nothing they can do about it, and so they do nothing, and the trends continue.

from the looks of reading it, the fine will be $100 if you have an aftermarket exhaust. I may have misread its subcategories though

And you know damned well what's going to happen. The vast majority of people who vote are going to think "hmm, this sounds like like a good idea. This should keep those darned kids from putting those loud mufflers on the crappy cars." I sent an email to all the representatives on that posting, and I would advise anyone else against this to do the same.

Most states (and probably Michigan) already have laws governing loud exhausts, they just aren't enforced much. It sounds like someone rapped their pipes while parked next to a congressman and pissed him off..lol

Louisiana has two of em...one says you have to have a muffler and the other is you can't modify your exhaust to make it louder.

I personally I like the sound of a quality aftermarket system especially on a V8....but, unfortunately there's the dip $hits that run straight pipes and like to rack em at all hours of the day and night (alot of shift workers down here that do have to sleep during the day).

With that, all the government haters, go hate on the redneck down the road and thank them for screwing it up for everyone else. The government only steps in when they feel the general puplic is to stupid for their own good and they feel the need to regulate and protect them.
