Another attack on the automotive restoration and repair industry is
your latest brain child: Going after the hex chrome platers.
That industry represents less than 1% of the total Chrome VI
emissions for the entire State of Ca. This industry is absolutely
vital tot he automotive manufacturing, repair, and restoration
industries. The last thing that Ca needs is more job killing
bureaucrats who worship the almighty carbon lie. Attached is a
chart that clearly shows the carbon levels being significantly
higher throughout history, BEFORE the advent of the automobile!
To kill off another industry like chrome plating is utter madness.
There is no reason, other than self-perpetuating legislation, and
the vindictive nature twords automobiles that CARB has
demonstrated, to kill off the chrome plating industry. We haven't
forgotten about the killing off of good paint and brake cleaner
that you pencil pushers did to use!
San Francisco used to have 3 marvelous platers. One in particular,
B&M, was so good that chrome parts that were plated in 1965 are
still on some show vehicles today! Now, everyone in the Bay Area
has to travel to Sacramento to get good chrome plating. How many
useless miles are traveled, and time, fuel, bridge tolls, etc
expended all because CARB shut down the platers in SF? Not very
environmentally conscious, is that?
Cut it out and go after the real polluters, like the thousands of
illegal aliens who litter our state with filth.
Thank you
