MVMA PRESIDENT STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF HIGHWAY LEGISLATION

 MVMA PRESIDENT STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF HIGHWAY LEGISLATION
 WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Following is a statement by Thomas H. Hanna, president and chief executive officer of the Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association (MVMA) of the United States, Inc. on House-Senate passage today of the "Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991."
 "We are pleased that Congress has passed legislation that extends the highway program. With respect to the bill's safety provisions, we are pleased that Congress has followed auto industry leadership on installation of airbags. The House-Senate conference closely followed manufacturers' plans to phase in airbags in cars and trucks. Airbags, as recognized in the bill, are supplemental restraints and not a substitute for safety belts. Safety experts all agree we could save thousands of lives and prevent millions of injuries if more people used their safety belts, whether or not their vehicle has airbags."
