Does anybody know about this?

Got a newsletter from Mid-America motorworks concerning aftermarket exhaust in Illinois




We need your help, right now, to protect your right to have an aftermarket exhaust on your car.



The Illinois legislature is trying to ban aftermarket exhausts. This bill was テや忖nder the radarテや until the House passed it. Now it is fast tracked to be approved by the Illinois Senate before the legislature adjourns.


Mid America Motorworks is already working to block approval of the bill. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP. As citizens and voters in Illinois, your opinion is important, more important than ours because your votes determine who holds office.



Call your Illinois State Senator, now, and tell him or her you oppose HB 2221. If you know your Senatorテや冱 name, or your district, just find the name or district number, click on the name, and get your Senatorテや冱 contact information.



If you donテや冲 know your Senatorテや冱 name or your district, please click each name until you find the Senator who represents you.



Act fast, we donテや冲 have much time!

I hope we keep this stupid a$$ bill from being passed!

I guess for politicians, it's easier to pass a bill that concerns non-living entities as opposed to passing tougher criminal punishments or codes.

Update from SEMA - vote stopped in the Senate!




The SEMA Action Network stalled final action on Illinois legislation (H.B. 2221) that threatened to ban vehicles equipped with a 窶徇uffler or exhaust system that clearly has been modified to amplify or increase the noise of the vehicle.窶 The bill had been quickly passed by the House in the final days of the legislative session, before being stopped by the SAN in the Senate.
