Oregon Introduces Bill to Prohibit Sale of Aftermarket Parts 
At the request of Governor Theodore Kulongoski, the Oregon Speaker of the
House has introduced legislation (H.B. 2186) to prohibit the sale and
distribution of aftermarket motor vehicle parts if alternatives are
available that "decrease greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles." The
bill is primarily focused on aftermarket tires and would authorize the
Environmental Quality Commission to implement enforcement regulations,
likely based on a rolling resistance calculation. 

We Urge You to Contact Oregon Speaker of the House Dave Hunt and Members of
the Environment and Water Committee (Contact Information Below) Immediately
to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 2186

H.B. 2186 would regulate vehicle fuel economy, an authority reserved to the
federal government.

H.B. 2186 could ban tires that may have improved performance, handling or
appearance features, based solely on a rolling resistance rating. In
addition, this program could easily distract consumers from focusing on more
important safety issues such as tire inflation and overloading of vehicles.

H.B. 2186 would force consumers to purchase only original equipment
manufacturer (OEM) tires because the program essentially exempts
OEM-selected tires and unfairly implies that they are superior to
aftermarket products.

H.B. 2186 could prohibit aftermarket parts designed to either personalize or
optimize specific vehicle performance attributes including handling, towing,
suspension, fuel economy, etc.

H.B. 2186 provides broad authority to government regulators and could limit
a range of aftermarket parts currently available to consumers based on the
subjective determination of government regulators.
DON'T DELAY! Please contact Oregon Speaker Dave Hunt and the House
Environment and Water Committee immediately to urge his opposition to H.B.
