Well, I finally recieved a response from the government about Hummer
sales. My senator had forwarded my letter to the appropriate agency for

The Defense Logistics agency responded that the National Highway Safety
Administration has determined that the military version of the Hummer
does not satisfy all Federal Motor Safety Standards and is unsafe for
highway use. They go on to state that the DOD does not provide Hummers
diretly to the general public but Hummers are made available to DOD
components, Federal Civil Agencies and specifically authorized
public-purpose entities.
Signed Daniel McGinity
Staff Director Congerssional Affairs.

It is interesting to note that out of 4 letters sent, one to each
senator , one to my Representative and one to the Chairman of the Senate
Armed Services Committee. This is the only one that responded. A great
illustration of our elected representatives at work.

Hope this helps,
