ASK EPA TO ENACT REASONABLE REGULATIONS!

New regulations contained in the EPA's "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on the Control of Emissions from Nonroad Large Spark Ignition Engines and Recreational Engines," could mean the demise of even "clean burning" recreational two-stroke dirt-bikes, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), and snowmobiles by 2006.

CLORV is urging its members to ask the EPA to create separate performance-based emissions standards for four-stroke and two-stroke motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, and personal watercraft. Although we support reasonable efforts by our government to reduce harmful emissions, the current proposal will functionally ban legitimate use and manufacture of recreational two-strokes. These new proposed regulations are based on faulty data and will simply drive up the cost of recreational vehicles.

The comment deadline is December 19, 2001.
