MIC and SVIA Requests for Exclusion re: ATVs and Dirtbikes

repost from a friend over at TTR's site

I thought you might be interested in this. Last week Americans
for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) asked me to write to
my Representatives in Congress because right now youth ATVs and
dirtbikes can no longer be sold because of new lead
restrictions. I took action immediately and now I'm asking you
to do the same. If you go to the URL below you can send your own
message directly to Congress.

As we all know, children do not eat, lick or mouth ATV or OHM
parts. ATVs and OHMs should be granted an exclusion because the
lead-containing components pose no risk of causing an increase
in blood lead levels in children. Congress even included a
common-sense exclusion from the new lead restrictions and we
need Congress to urge the Consumer Product Safety Commission to
grant this common sense exclusion as allowed by law.

Writing to Congress is easy and will take almost no time. Take
action by going to


Everyone needs to get involved in this even if you do not have young kids!
