Arizona exempts older vehicles from emissions inspection

SEMA ACTION NETWORK LEGISLATIVE ALERT UPDATE

Arizona Bill to Exempt Older Vehicles from Emissions Inspection Signed Into Law    

Legislation to exempt all vehicles manufactured in the 1974 model year and earlier from the state’s mandatory biennial emissions inspection program was signed into law by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.  Under previous law, only vehicles manufactured in 1966 and earlier and “collectibles” were exempt.  The governor’s signature acknowledges the relatively minimal environmental impact of older vehicles, such as the historic cars targeted for this exemption.  These vehicles constitute a small portion of the vehicle fleet and are well-maintained and infrequently operated.

Thank you and congratulations to all who participated in supporting this bill!

    WOW! I live in Az and drive a 67 Corvair that has to be tested every year and knew nothing of this bill. Glad it finally passed, emisions test was almost as much as a years plate. My registration is due in May so will soon find out if it is true.
