Legislation to extend the emissions-inspection exemption for new cars from six to eight model years has been approved by the Senate Environmental Quality Committee and now moves to the Appropriations Committee. The bill has already been approved by the full California Assembly. Under the bill, the newly exempted motor vehicles (model years seven and eight) would be subject to an annual smog abatement fee of $24. If enacted into law, the exemption would become effective January 1, 2018.
