It isn't written very well but if it could get passed for some crazy reason, eleventy billion people would be ecstatic!

"WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Individuals who modify their vehicles to run on cleaner alternate fuels (E85, CNG, etc.) can apply to be smog exempt.
Individuals who modify their vehicles to run on cleaner alternate fuels (E85, CNG, etc.) can qualify and apply to become smog exempt in any state

Example: Taking a stock car running on gasoline and modifying it to run on E85. To modify a vehicle to run on E85, it requires the individual to switch to a bigger intake, larger fuel injectors, larger fuel pump, extra sensors, and at times (depending on the vehicle) requires an ECU stand alone system to control the newly modify components. Doing this will fail the vehicle at smogging due to the visual inspection for multiple issues, one being that the vehicle doesn't have the OBD connection anymore. Even though the vehicle failed visually, out the tailpipe the vehicle can be considered a LEV (Low Emission Vehicle) or ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle)

Created: Dec 09, 2011"

Problem being, you mod your car for E85, then switch back to real gas w/ your exemption. Sad to say it'll never pass, but best of luck to you!

Also, post up a petition on Change.org, those hippies love this kind of thing.
