The Senate Transportation Committee has approved legislation to exempt antique motor vehicles from the requirement that they have exhaust systems of a type installed as standard factory equipment.
   

Senate legislation (S.B. 702) to exempt antique motor vehicles from the requirement that they have exhaust systems of a type installed as standard factory equipment, or comparable to that designed for use on the particular vehicle as standard factory equipment, was approved with an amendment by the Senate Transportation Committee. The measure now moves to the Senate floor for a vote by all members.

Under the amendment, the bill would apply only to antique vehicles manufactured prior to 1950 containing engines comparable to that designed as standard factory equipment for use on that vehicle.
