Amended Version of Colorado Bill to Extend Emissions Inspection Waiver for Newer Cars Approved by Committee

Legislation that originally sought to extend the emissions inspection exemption to vehicles that are eight model years old and newer was amended and approved by the Senate Transportation Committee. Under the amendment, the bill now would provide the exemption to vehicles six model years old and newer. Current law only exempts vehicles that are four model years old or newer. Even with the amendment, this is still a bill worthy of support. The bill will now be considered by the Senate Appropriations Committee.
