Thumbs down North Dakota Introduces Bill to Restrict Vehicle Modifications

http://www.semasan.com/main/main.aspx?id=62870



A bill (H.B. 1442) has been introduced in the North Dakota State Legislature to prohibit the modification of any motor vehicle that alters the manufacturer's original suspension, steering or brake system unless the state highway patrol issues an inspection certificate. Current law permits modification if the equipment meets “SEMA standards.” H.B. 1442 adds that modifying equipment may also meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). Among other things, the bill also would require fenders on all motor vehicles. The bill will be considered by the North Dakota House Transportation committee on Thurs., Feb. 3, 2011.



We Urge You to Contact House Transportation Committee Members (List Attached) Immediately To Request Their Opposition to H.B. 1442



For those interested in attending the hearing to voice their opposition, the committee will meet on Thurs., Feb. 3 at 2:45 p.m. at the following address:



Fort Totten Room
State Capitol
600 East Boulevard Avenue
Bismarck, North Dakota 58505-0360



• This bill makes no sense. There are no specific SEMA standards applicable to equipment used to modify suspension, steering or brake systems. SEMA does not set standards. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) only issues FMVSS to regulate equipment that is required on all new motor vehicles. An aftermarket part may only be regulated if it takes a vehicle out-of-compliance with a required piece of safety equipment when installed. For example, lift kits used to modify ride height for function and utility are not specifically regulated by FMVSS.



• H.B. 1442 does not indicate any objective criteria that the state patrol will use to determine which modifications are legal.



• H.B. 1442 would require fenders on all vehicles regardless of whether or not they were originally manufactured with this equipment.



DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the North Dakota House Transportation Committee immediately to request their opposition to H.B. 1442.



Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at [email protected]. Thank you for your assistance.

This is precisely why we're here. The government is looking at new and innovative ways to dictate what you can, and can't do with your car, or how much you'll have to pay to do it. Just because that bill is in North Dakota doesn't mean it can't come to your backyard. Remember that. That's why it's crucial to join SAN at www.SEMASAN.com and be ready for when such attacks occur.

Unfortunately, it would be quite alot. Everyday new legislation is proposed that would trample on the rights of hobbyists from one end of the country to another. Thankfully, our skilled staff is able to squash most of it before it becomes a problem. The best thing we can all do is unite under the SAN flag. Join up, FOR FREE, at www.SEMASAN.com and spread the word to your family, friends, and fellow enthusiasts.

What is Rep Gruchalla's district? Mustangers need to get involved with the next election cycle to determine whether Rep Gruchalla is the best person for that office.

My mistake. It was introduced by both Ruby AND Gruchalla.

This pisses me off even more; he's in my district and barely won re-election after a recount---21 votes if I remember correctly. Some shady stuff went on with early voting a lot of people got the wrong ballots and didn't have local representatives on it....

I'm going to talk to Joe about this issue this weekend when he gets home from Bismarck. On the bright side, Ed is in the minority party so anything that he brings forward probably doesn't stand much of a chance of getting passed.
