NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 12)—The Tire Retread Information Bureau is marshaling its members to oppose an anti-retreading joint resolution in the Tennessee General Assembly. The resolution, introduced Jan. 9 by Sen. Douglas Henry, D-Nashville, among other things calls on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to "explore the feasibility of prohibiting the use of recapped tires on commercial motor vehicles." TRIB Managing Director Harvey Brodsky sent a letter to Henry, saying the resolution "would cause unnecessary havoc and expense, and could destroy a very important industry for no good reason." A spokeswoman for Henry said the senator had received Brodsky´s letter and planned to discuss the issue with him very shortly.
