SubjectBanning is not the answer...
I have worked at/around a chrome plating shop for 26 years, you are
looking to take the quick and easy road and just kill off an
industry. The industry has stated time, and time again that we are
willing and able to discuss and work through tighter regulations
and rules. This is the ideal way forward. 

The complete ban on chrome plating in any time frame is not
practical. We as an industry produce less than 1% of all hex chrome
emissions, who/what/where are the 99%? What are you doing about
limiting the excess emissions from all the bigger places and
companies and names? By attacking the smallest group, you will be
shutting down small businesses in the state, and forcing jobs out
of state - because people will not suddenly stop wanting chrome,
they will just have to get it from other places (who most likely
have lesser emissions standards and thus affect even more people).

Please consider pushing back any rules or voting, unless all the
research is complete, until the actual facts are verified and we
can all move forward together and not leave thousands of people
without jobs.
