Hi,All of the consumers should want to stop this
especially EVers and Hot Roders and hobbyists who like to modify cars.

Don't you tell me that you like to user those nice tires that
the hybrids and electrics use in your car? Well you won't be able to.  How
about all those parts you buy to make your car electric? Well the guy who sells them sells other aftermarket parts, if he is not able to sell them; he won't be
able to maintain his business.I'm just trying to bring attention to this. just my 2 cents.

I'm not sure why EVers would want to stop 
this; here's the text of the bill: http://landru.leg.state.or.us/09reg/measures/hb2100.dir/hb2186.intro.html
Maybe I've missed a subtlety you guys have picked 
up on. - khg

ALERT 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. 2186H.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. 2186. Oregon House Speaker Dave HuntPhone: 503/986-1440Email: rep.davehunt at state.or.usOregon House Environment and Water
