HONOLULU, Hawaii (May 19, 2014) — Legislation governing the use of vehicle aftermarket exhaust systems died when the Hawaii state legislature adjourned for the year.
According to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), the bill would have required official state inspection stations to test vehicles to determine if their exhaust systems “emit noise
noticeably greater than that emitted by the vehicle as equipped from the factory.” The bill had not been given committee consideration.
The bill “unfairly provided no objective standard by which vehicles could be tested,” SEMA said in its eNews newsletter, “and did not provide inspection stations with decibel readings on factory-installed exhaust systems.”
How will the new Labor Department rule on overtime pay affect you?
|I've already had to demote some managers and assistant managers because of it||
|I was hoping to hire some new technicians soon. I can't now because of the new overtime rules||
|It won't affect me much||
|I think it's fair for assistant managers to get compensation for overtime||
|I'm voting a straight GOP ticket this November to see if we can get rid of this||
