SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE VEHICLE EMISSIONS REDUCTION TO HOLD PRESS CONFERENCE ON EPA PROPOSED AUTO INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE RULE

SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE VEHICLE EMISSIONS REDUCTION TO HOLD PRESS
 CONFERENCE ON EPA PROPOSED AUTO INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE RULE
 The Society of Automotive Vehicle Emissions Reduction, Inc. (SAVER), a coalition of testing equipment and component manufacturers, has arranged a press conference on EPA proposed automobile emission inspection and maintenance rule.
 The conference will be held at noon on Wednesday, Aug. 12 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, 400 New Jersey Ave. N.W., in the Conference Theater. A complimentary buffet lunch will be served.
 This is the first of two days of public hearings by EPA on the proposed rule.
 SAVER will be pointing out that the rule will force states to choose centralized I/M programs, using costly technology known as I/M 240. The result of the rule will force small business service stations and auto dealers to either install new equipment costing $150,000 or more or lose their inspection business, according to SAVER.
 The speakers will establish that the EPA is failing its statutory duty to provide the states with flexibility to choose inspection programs that are cost effective, convenient to the motorist and will clean up the air.
 SAVER says there are far less costly ways to achieve the cleanup, but EPA refuses to permit their use or even fairly evaluate them.
 Participants in the conference:
 -- Mort Getman, executive director, SAVER;
 -- Gene Fondren, executive vice president, Texas Automotive
 Dealers Association;
 -- Dennis DeCota, president, California Service Station Operators
 CONTACT: Joe Shafran of SAVER, 202-544-1610/
