U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) has introduced language that would exempt youth off-highway vehicles (OHVs) from the lead law that effectively bans the machines at the end of the year, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reports.
Senate Amendment 264 (SA 264), co-sponsored by Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.), would exempt youth OHVs from the lead-content provisions of the Consumer product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008, which is known as the lead law. Those provisions contain overly restrictive lead-content limits that have virtually destroyed responsible youth motorized recreation.
SA 264 would amend S. 493, which is a small business program reauthorization bill. All amendments and the final legislation are set to be voted on by the Senate next week.
