    Default Emissions Standards Relief for Track Cars

    I wasn't even aware of this potential (and difficult to enforce?) problem.

    This is not a win; it is a decoy.

    The language criminalizing merchants selling, and manufacturers making, emissions bypassing products is still in place.

    At least the EPA recognized the value of the motorsports industry. From the Motor Trend story:

    "In a statement clarifying the removal of this language, the EPA now says it 'supports motorsports and its contributions to the American economy and communities all across the country.'”

    This just came out the other day. There is still time to contact your Congressional representative or Senator and express your opinion on the RPM Act.

    This is the same Motor Trend that published an article after the outcry began that there is no reason for the outcry... SMH

    Who was it that said they worry "any time congress is in session?"

    You never know what state assemblies or congress will pass into law. Most of it is generally not good as it was pushed through by a small exclusively self-centered special interest group.

    For example, does California really need to be passing 800+ laws each year? That is more than 5 laws per day they are in session. Some are lame like this year moss becomes the official California lichen. But anything more serious than that is probably not good for 99% of us.

    We have official lichen? That's a jest, right? Right?!

    That's sort of the problem with employing law makers. Things get slow, and then they pass laws because there is nothing else for them to do. I wonder if it would be possible to establish a device that would serve to limit the glut of laws; Such as a 1000-word limit for all single laws, and mandatory judicial review for any laws invoking or establishing criminal prosecution (infraction, misdemeanor, & felony) where a litmus test is applied to verify constitutional muster using intermediate and strict scrutiny where appropriate, as a final step before those laws can be enacted.

    I am dead serious. That is the problem with our lawmakers. They have no need for more than about 10 bills per year, not 800+.
