CA Emissions Bill Dies

California Bill to Require ANNUAL Emissions Tests for Vehicles 15-Years Old and Older Dies in Committee

Legislation (A.B. 859) in the California Assembly to require annual Smog check inspections for vehicles 15-years old and older was held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee and is essentially dead for the year.  The bill would also have required that funds generated through the additional inspection fees be deposited into an account which could have been used to scrap older cars.  Pre-1976 motor vehicles would have remained exempt under A.B. 859.

SEMA worked to protect the interest of car owners in California to help defeat this bill.  Thanks and congratulations to all of you who participated in this effort to defeat A.B. 859!
