SEMA Opposes MI Aftermarket Exhaust Bill

Written by Tire Business Staff Report

The Specialty Equipment Market Association has gone on record in opposition of legislation in Michigan that restricts certain aftermarket exhaust systems.
Under the bill, a person who modifies an exhaust system to “produce noise in excess of OEM stock decibel levels” would be forced to pay a fine of $10,000 for each violation, SEMA said.

According to the Diamond Bar-based trade group, under Michigan law a motor-vehicle repair facility means “a place of business which engages in the business of performing or employing persons who perform maintenance, diagnosis, vehicle body work or repair service on a motor vehicle for compensation,”

More information about the legislation is on the SEMA Action Network website.
