WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) — Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange recently commented on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) decision to withdraw its proposed emission rule that would have banned the usage of converted street vehicles for off-street racing.

“I am pleased the EPA listened to the many thousands of Americans who would have been harmed by its proposed rule that would have effectively shut down off-street racing in Alabama and across the country,” Strange said.

Strange noted his state was among the eight that called on EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to drop the proposal.

“I am gratified that Administrator McCarthy has acted to ensure that common sense prevails in its agency ruling making and that motor sports does not become the latest victim of EPA bureaucratic overreach,” Strange said.

The EPA released a statement that noted its support of motor sports. It says its focus has been on companies that don’t play by the rules and that make and sell products that disable pollution controls on motor vehicles used on public roads.
