Hawaii dealers and reps will meet tonight, Monday, at 7 pm to decide how they will best organize to deal with anti-12 volt legislation in the state.
Hawaii industry members must
A. Figure out an alternative to the recently killed-bill HB1178 that sought to limit car audio in the state. The industry agreed to work with the state to help curb “noise pollution.” So its incumbent upon the industry to create a proactive plan and perhaps create a kind of “safe sounds” campaign, Carmina Ahmed of Car Audio Express in Hawaii told us.
B. Regroup to fight the senate version (SB1368) of the same car audio bill and other pending bills that would all but ban car alarms in Hawaii.
C. Figure out the best way to regroup: join the Mobile Electronics Retailers Association or create a separate Hawaii’s action group.
Ahmed expects about 30 industry members will attend tonight’s meeting. Wish we could!
