Angry California Noise Reductions (AB1555)

I just finished reading the most recent information on the passage of the above bill which will make it impossible for any of us to pass the new noise restrictions, even if you have mufflers! I can not tell from the government web site if the bill has already passed its final reading but it has definately been read twice and passed 13-0 on the first one and 17-1 on the second round. If there is anyone from California with any clout in the senate on this board we could sure use some help. If not, a lot of us will have some real expensive lawn ornaments.

I can't believe there is no interest with this. If this law is enforced we have serious problems in California. This law is much tougher than any other state I know of. The new law limits noise to 88 Decibels as measured in idle. The only thing I can not find for sure is the distance they measure from but I believe it is one meter. Maybe audiofn can chime in and let everyone know how easy it is to measure 88db.

It won't be long before the whole country has these type of restrictions I am afraid.

I can only recommend to keep a very wary eye on this. When it comes to emissions, as goes CA, as goes the nation (eventually.)

From what I have heard, it is impossible to comply with mufflers. Exhaust must be below the waterline.

For example, a lawn mower with sound power level 88dB(A) will produce
a sound level of about 60dB(A) at a distance of 33 feet. If the sound
power level was 78dB(A) then the lawn mower sound level would be only
50dB(A) at the same distance.


here is some examples
