Feb. 6 CPSC News Release Offers No Help for OHV Ban

The CPSC’s News Release today

is of little help to the Powersports community. The General believes that totally inaccessible parts have always been excluded from the lead content limits. However, the problem is, there are many components/parts on ATVs and motorcycles that contain lead and are accessible (e.g. levers; tire valves; suspension parts; external engine parts; etc.). The MIC petition expressly seek an exclusion only for accessible lead-containing parts, components and accessories

MIC News Release on Petition Info

Please continue to send letters to Congress, the Administration, and CPSC asking them to support the MIC’s petition. See my previous blogs for sample letter, etc.
