I'm in this list because of the same reason.

We all want to see a better and cleaner world.

What I do not want is to have my freedom compromised by mandatory governmental procedures and regulations.

As it has been in the past these rules are going to be applied to all aftermarket parts, even the ones that are good for the environment.

  I would support anything that would help me see real blue sky and breathe fresh air again.  I've felt this way for the last 50 years.

    We need to stop this. As a new bill is soon to be introduced.
    We need all to send emails and letters as this could be the end of the aftermarked parts market.

    as you said even if you aren't from Oregon, please send an e-mail anyways to help get this bill to fail.

    Your state could be next!!!!

    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. 2186.
