I received an e-mail from Mid-America Motorworks. Their main focus is aftermarket accessories for Corvette. Apparently our state is attempting to ban aftermarket exhausts via inpection upon emmissions testing. Did anyone else receive this, or heard of this proposed bill? If not, here's what the e-mail says: "We need your help, right now, to protect your right to have an aftermarket exhaust on your car. The Illinois legislature is trying to ban aftermarket exhausts. This bill was Âunder the radarÂ until the House passed it. Now it is fast tracked to be approved by the Illinois Senate before the legislature adjourns. Mid America Motorworks is already working to block approval of the bill. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP. As citizens and voters in Illinois, your opinion is important, more important than ours because your votes determine who holds office. Call your Illinois State Senator, now, and tell him or her you oppose HB 2221. If you know your SenatorÂs name, or your district, just find the name or district number, click on the name, and get your SenatorÂs contact information. If you donÂt know your SenatorÂs name or your district, please click each name until you find the Senator who represents you. Act fast, we donÂt have much time! Senator District Party Pamela J.
