Vermont Bill to Extend Emissions-Inspection Waiver Dies as the Legislature Adjourns

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

A bill was introduced in the Vermont state legislature to extend the emissions inspection exemption to vehicles that have not yet reached their fourth model year. Current law does not provide for a new vehicle exemption. The bill would have also exempted “pleasure cars” and “exhibition vehicles” from emissions inspections.

The bill failed to receive a hearing in the House Transportation committee before the legislature adjourned; however, it will be eligible for consideration in the 2019 session.
