Heat Prevention Regulation is unrealistic

This is another example of regulation in search of a problem.  As a small auto repair/ gas station owner we do not need more costly, ineffective, burdensome regulations that will harm our businesses.  In the summer it gets hot. Due to COVID we now meet a great number of our customers outside in the parking lot. We repair tires, head lights and wipers while people wait ... outside. We road test vehicles. We maintain our grass, plant flowers and decorate to make the neighborhood beautiful.  When people have trouble with the gas pumps we our employees help them. We pump gas for our handicapped & elderly customers. All of these activities would be prohibited or limited to 15 minutes per hour which is not a sustainable business model. This is extremely short sighted and nonsensical example of beauracratic overreach and should be opposed by every business and politician in the state.  Scott
