URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT
Oregon Introduces Bill to Prohibit Sale of Aftermarket Parts
At the request of Governor Theodore Kulongoski, the Oregon Speaker of the House has introduced legislation (H.B. 2186) to prohibit the sale and distribution of aftermarket motor vehicle parts if alternatives are available that “decrease greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles.” The bill is primarily focused on aftermarket tires and would authorize the Environmental Quality Commission to implement enforcement regulations, likely based on a rolling resistance calculation.

We Urge You to Contact Oregon Speaker of the House Dave Hunt and Members of the Environment and Water Committee (Contact Information Below) Immediately to Request Their Opposition to H.B. 2186

H.B. 2186 would regulate vehicle fuel economy, an authority reserved to the federal government.


H.B. 2186 could ban tires that may have improved performance, handling or appearance features, based solely on a rolling resistance rating. In addition, this program could easily distract consumers from focusing on more important safety issues such as tire inflation and overloading of vehicles.


H.B. 2186 would force consumers to purchase only original equipment manufacturer (OEM) tires because the program essentially exempts OEM-selected tires and unfairly implies that they are superior to aftermarket products.


H.B. 2186 could prohibit aftermarket parts designed to either personalize or optimize specific vehicle performance attributes including handling, towing, suspension, fuel economy, etc.


H.B. 2186 provides broad authority to government regulators and could limit a range of aftermarket parts currently available to consumers based on the subjective determination of government regulators.
DON’T DELAY! Please contact Oregon Speaker Dave Hunt and the House Environment and Water Committee immediately to urge his opposition to H.B. 2186.

I thought my friends were messing with me, seeing that I'm trying to save up for a lift and wheels.
Talk about keeping Portland weird!

What are your thoughts on this bill?

Having just came back from a trip to Portland, OR/Vancouver, WA, I can see that being introduced.

Now either an auto manufacturer can create a list of "approved" OEM tires or the tire companies can get huge profits because people are forced to buy the OEM.

Sears, Tire Merchants, Les Schwab, etc would be in trouble because they would lose a lot of business...

Short sighted attempt to deal with an environmental issue.

That's why politicians are often called lawmakers. I see Oregon
has it's own Global Warming Commission. After reading some of
their documents, nothing would suprise me.

(c) Requirements to maintain or retrofit medium-duty and
heavy-duty trucks in order to reduce aerodynamic drag and
otherwise reduce greenhouse gas emissions from those trucks.

Are only 18 wheelers that meet Oregon's aerodynamic standards
going to be allowed to enter the state?

Not like they are trying to control everything people do. We are not children and they are not our parents to tell us what is right and wrong. So they will get to decide what people will buy for vehicles next. Only Chebbys since they are more fuel efficient.:ftard::ftard::ftard:
Sounds like that will be the next communist state on the board. So whose the extremist in charge of this crap (a Gore follower):confused:

Not to worry, Al Gore owns a fleet of "approved" trucks waiting at the State line and government paid illegal immigrants to move the cargo to his trucks, green is good.

Write your legislature and tell them to go smoke their medical marijuana while they push the needle into grandma's arm during her assisted suicide and to leave you and your monster mudders alone
