STATEMENT OF THE AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURES ASSOCIATION NATIONAL PROGRAMS AND THEIR RELATIONS WITH STATE AND LOCAL

We have recommended a strategy for reduction of noise annoyance, and have given you our views on the broad major considerations of technology, economics, standards and enforcement. Five recommendations in this connection are the following: A. That, after thorough study of need, uniform national standards be issued, with Federal preemption and consideration of possible conflict or trade-offs involving safety and emissions standards. B. That model legislation be developed for the guidance of states and local communities. C. That effective enforcement procedures be developed for state and local use. D. That a long-range policy of motor vehicle noise reduction be undertaken, taking technological and economic feasibility into account.
