URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
 

Ohio Headlamps Bill Amended 

The Ohio Senate Transportation Committee approved a SEMA Action Network (SAN) amendment to legislation (S.B. 161) that originally required headlights on motor vehicles to display a “white light” without defining the term.  The SAN amendment conforms the legislation to U.S. Department of Transportation standards regarding headlamp color, which all headlamps destined for on-road use must comply.  The Committee will take a final vote on the bill on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the Senate Transportation Committee (Contact Info Below) to Support the Amended S.B. 161 
• All headlamps are required to comply with the color requirements contained in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.  It is illegal for a state to enact a law that would conflict with a federal standard.
 
• Under the Federal standards, it is possible to design a headlamp that can be perceived as having a blue tint but which nevertheless remains within the federal boundaries that define "white."
 
• The original S.B. 161 seemed to be targeting illegal high-intensity discharge (HID) conversion kits, which are already illegal under Federal law.  However, the original bill could have even banned factory-installed HID headlamps which emit a blue hue.

DON’T DELAY!  Please contact members of the Ohio Senate Transportation Committee by phone or e-mail to request their support for the amended version of S.B. 161   

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org.  Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts.  Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.

Hard to believe that people are that concerned over the color of a headlight. Even the new car's are starting to go to the hid lights, which turn out looking blue.
Love building rat rods, driving mustangs, and building websites.
