Colorado Bill to Extend Emissions Inspection Waiver Approved by Committee, Sent to Senate

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff 

SEMA-supported legislation to extend the new car emissions inspection exemption from four to seven model years has been approved by two Senate Committees and sent to the Senate floor. The bill recognizes that it is pointless to test newer vehicles, the results of which demonstrate no significant air-quality benefits. Under the bill, the state is also directed to adopt rules that allow for the use of on-board diagnostic testing equipment.
