Colorado Bill to Extend Emissions Inspection Waiver Dies as Legislature Adjourns

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff 

SEMA-supported legislation to extend the new car emissions inspection exemption from four to seven model years was passed by the Colorado Senate but died in the House when the Legislature adjourned for the year. An amendment approved by the Senate had moved the implementation date from 2014 to 2016, but kept the extension in place. Separate legislation to extend the exemption to vehicles 10 years old and newer was not approved in the committee earlier this year.
