There’s been mutterings in back-channels I have to the hill claiming 45’s administration is massively cutting budgets to departments they consider needlessly bloated, EPA included. This is causing said departments to clamor for funding to avoid cutting staff or reducing salaries. Departments capable of levying fines or fees will do it by hook or by crook.
SEMA is a ripe market for picking and has enjoyed a long period of being left alone due to disclaimer loopholes and loose follow-up at the user level. We all, in the back of our minds, if we’re being honest, knew this was coming. Big Brother makes sure you never actually “own” anything via recurrent taxation for the privilege of possessing or operating it; they’re just extending such to modifications now. Frankly the fed is shooting itself in the foot given the tax revenue generated by aftermarket sales, but I doubt EPA is concerned about sales coffers as much as its own budget right now.
Last week several folks on the hill were talking about drafting legislation to eliminate all fossil fueled transportation infrastructure and energy generation within ten years. That ought to give us a clue as to how detached from reality those people actually are...
