You're the one who introduced politics into the discussion. "The EPA historically has been about as trustworthy as the present administration... oh thats right they are." Please stay on topic.Oh, I geuss I'm clear now
Government agencies would/could never be a political one.
Even those with politically driven agendas... as just witnessed by the censored multiple ligit post.
Even if certain agencies could be "bent" towards the views of whatever administration is in power, said agencies will still be enforcing rules enacted regardless. Of course, priorities shift for various reasons. Like, I somehow doubt the FCC, FRA, DOT, etc would be enforcing laws substantially different if administration X was in power vs administration Y.You're the one who introduced politics into the discussion.

I’ll respect your right and power to remove remarks as you see fit. But I will contend and point out that my remark you deleted had no political overtone. None of my remarks do, on this forum or in casual conversation. It was strictly my view of governmental action in general.Posts with political overtones have been deleted.
Yeah, I saw a couple more news stories of tuners and shops getting popped just days after the Drive article about it being de-prioritized going forward. Had to assume there were investigations they were already in the middle of and would be moving forward with them.Still not a priority....................
GDP Tuning and Gorilla Performance pled guilty to criminal charges in federal court for selling “tens of thousands” of tuning devices.www.thedrive.com
well.. it might have to do with my comment which did bring politics in lol. it was fairly lengthy, while i didnt name/attack any specific political parties i pretty clearly criticized the entire political system and how theyre handling "climate change."In retrospect I dont see how politics we're pulled from simply stating the epa has pulled these shenanigans before backed loosely with past example, or is that considered politics?
So back to the topic
yeah i agree, whatever they had already open was likely going to just run it's course. however i wouldn't be surprised if theyre just saying they are shifting focus in the hope that more deletes pop up which they could they pursueYeah, I saw a couple more news stories of tuners and shops getting popped just days after the Drive article about it being de-prioritized going forward.

Plus, I believe the shift away from targeting the aftermarket so heavily may not begin until next year. Whatever investigations they were still working on they will likely see through in the meantime.
Exactly, they won't escalate it comparatively. The status quo has already been determined, I doubt they are going to roll backwards on their policies toward emissions or those that violate them."No longer a top priority" doesn't mean "not a priority" or "not at all".
Stop with the coal-fired argument. Coal is nowhere near the major provider of electrical power in the US, and in some regions there's little to no coal use at all. The official numbers for 2022 is 19.5% of all electricity came from coal, and that number drops every year.force customers to drop $70K or more on some POS EV that uses coal-fired grid power
