Legislation has been introduced in Connecticut to extend the emissions inspection exemption to vehicles five-model-years old or newer. Current law exempts vehicles that are four-model-years old or newer. The measure acknowledges that it is senseless to test newer vehicles, the results of which demonstrate no significant air-quality benefits. The idea behind exempting any class of vehicles is to reduce costs while not losing appreciable emissions reductions. This strategy builds support for emissions inspection programs, but also directs finite resources to where they will be most valuable in cleaning the air.
