Colorado Introduces Proposal to Exempt Newer Cars From Emissions Inspection

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation has been introduced in the Colorado State Legislature to extend the emissions inspection exemption to vehicles that have not yet reached their 10th model year. Current law only exempts vehicles that are four model years old or newer. The bill would also exempt previously registered motor vehicles that have never failed an emissions control inspection and create a senior citizen hardship exemption whereby a senior citizen may register one motor vehicle without obtaining an emissions inspection.
