Iowa Bill to Protect Hobbyists From Unfair Exhaust Noise Citations Not Given Committee Consideration

SEMA model legislation that would have allowed Iowa’s vehicle hobbyists to install and use aftermarket modified exhaust systems that meet a 95-decibel limit was not given consideration by the full Senate Transportation Committee before the legislature adjourned for the year.  Introduced by Senator Jeff Danielson, the bill would have removed subjective provisions in the law and forced compliance with a fair and predictable test, benefitting consumers and police officers who are charged with enforcing the law. The measure is expected to be reintroduced in 2013.

Thank you to all who participated in supporting the bill.
