A Senate Appropriations Committee hearing on amended legislation to exempt motor vehicles prior to the ’81 model year from emissions-inspection requirement has been set for Friday, May 27, 2016. Under the amended bill, vehicles manufactured after the ’76 model year but prior to the ’81 model year would be exempted if the owner submits proof that the vehicle is insured as a collector motor vehicle. This exemption would be a two-year trial that would need to be renewed by separate legislation in order to continue. Current law requires the lifetime testing of all ’76 and newer model-year vehicles.
