ECONOMIC IMPACT STUDY OF THE PROPOSED MOTOR VEHICLE (IN-USE) NOISE REGULATIONS
The study, prepared pursuant to Illinois Public Act 79-790, examines economic impacts expected to result from the establishment of proposed noise standards applicable to motor vehicles in use in Illinois. The study assesses the costs of the standards as applied to the several vehicles classes (heavy, medium, and light trucks, automobiles and motorcyles), and the impact of these cost on state and local government, and on Illinois agriculture. The potential effects on prices, employment, and industrial activity are also considered. The last section of the study reviews the anticipated benefits from noise abatement expected to be achieved by the proposed standards, provides a measure of those benefits, and compares benefits with costs on an overall basis and, for certain vehicle classes, on an incremental basis. The method for determining the amount of noise reduction expected from each of the vehicle classes is described.
