Bill to Extend Emissions Exemption for Newer Cars Passed by Nevada Senate Natural Resources Committee  

Legislation to extend the emissions inspection waiver for new vehicles has been approved by the Nevada Senate Natural Resources Committee. Under the bill, new cars will be exempt for the first three years after their initial registration. The bill also changes the state’s emissions inspection program so that vehicles will only be required to undergo testing every two years. Current law requires annual emissions inspections for passenger vehicles and exempts new vehicles only for the first two years after initial registration. The bill will next be considered by the Senate Finance Committee.
