Start Preamble

On January 6, 2014, the Department of Justice lodged a proposed consent decree with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas in the lawsuit entitled United States v. Savoia, Inc., et al., Civil Action No. 3:12-CV-2344-B.

The United States filed this lawsuit under the Clean Air Act. The United States' complaint seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties for the importation and sale of recreational vehicles and highway motorcycles in violation of the Clean Air Act and its regulations. The consent decree requires defendants to pay a civil penalty of $120,000 (which amount was based on an assessment of ability to pay), to export or destroy certain vehicles in their inventory, and to certify that they are no longer engaging in Clean Air Act-regulated activities or otherwise to abide by the terms of a compliance plan (which is incorporated into the consent decree) to ensure future compliance with applicable Clean Air Act requirements.

The publication of this notice opens a period for public comment on the consent decree. Comments should be addressed to the Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, and should refer to United States v. Savoia, Inc., et al., D.J. Ref. No. 90-5-2-1-10243.
