California Introduces Bill to Exempt Pre-1981 Vehicles From Emissions Inspection Requirement
In 2004, legislation was enacted to repeal California’s rolling emissions-test exemption for vehicles 30 years old and older and replace it with a law requiring the lifetime testing of all ’76 and newer model-year vehicles. This year, a SEMA-supported bill has been introduced in the California Senate to exempt all motor vehicles prior to the ’81 model year from the emissions inspection requirement. The bill will be considered in the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee March 27, 2012.
