Tennessee Bill to Exempt Newer Cars From Emissions Inspection Approved by Legislature; Moves to Governor

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff  

The Tennessee Legislature approved legislation to extend the emissions-inspection exemption for new cars.

Legislation to extend the emissions-inspection exemption for new cars was approved by the Tennessee Legislature. Under the bill, all vehicles three years old and newer would be excused regardless of mileage. Current law only exempts new motor vehicles being registered for the first time or one year from initial registration. The bill will now be sent to Governor Bill Haslam for his signature and enactment into law.
