Identical legislation 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 as standard factory equipment was approved by the Virginia House and Senate.

Identical legislation 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 as standard factory equipment was approved by the Virginia House and Senate. Both bills contain an amendment that restricts this exemption only to antique vehicles manufactured prior to 1950 containing engines comparable to that designed as standard factory equipment for use on that vehicle. The bills will now be sent to Governor Terry McAuliffe for his signature and enactment into law. While the amended legislation is a heavily diluted version of the original bills, it is still an improvement over current law.
