Committee Fails to Approve Colorado Bill to Extend Emissions Inspection Waiver

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff  

Legislation to exempt from emissions inspections those vehicles that have not yet reached their 10th model year was denied approval by the Colorado Senate Transportation Committee on a 3–1 vote. Current law only exempts vehicles that are four model years old or newer. The bill would have also exempted previously registered motor vehicles that have never failed an emissions-control inspection and created a senior citizen hardship exemption whereby a senior citizen could register one motor vehicle without obtaining an emissions inspection.
