Thumbs up Arizona Introduces Bill to Exempt Older Vehicles from Emissions Tests

http://www.semasan.com/main/main.aspx?id=62874

A bill (S.B. 1324) has been introduced in the Arizona State Senate to exempt all vehicles more than 25-years old, without condition, from the state’s mandatory biennial emissions inspection and maintenance program. A hearing on the bill has been scheduled for Feb. 7, 2011 in the Senate Natural Resources and Transportation Committee.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the Arizona Senate Natural Resources and Transportation Committee (List Attached Below) Immediately to Request Their Support for S.B. 1324

For those interested in attending the hearing to voice support, the Committee will meet on Mon., Feb.7 at the following address:

Senate Hearing Room 109
Arizona State Senate
Capitol Complex
1700 West Washington
Phoenix, AZ 85007-2890

• Existing law in Arizona only exempts pre-1967 model year vehicles and those vehicles designated as “collectible.”

• Under Arizona law, a “collectible vehicle" is a vehicle that is at least fifteen years old or of a unique or rare design, of limited production and an object of curiosity. Collectible vehicles must be maintained primarily for use in car club activities, exhibitions, parades or other functions of public interest and used only infrequently for other purposes and have a collectible vehicle or classic automobile insurance policy that restricts the collectible vehicle’s mileage and/or use to qualify for the current collectible vehicle emissions exemption. To qualify for the exemption, the owner must also own a secondary vehicle for general transportation.

• S.B. 1324 provides for a rolling emissions inspection exemption that would exempt qualifying vehicles upon enactment and would pick up an additional model year for each year the law is in effect.

• S.B. 1324 acknowledges the relatively minimal environmental impact of older vehicles, such as the historic cars targeted for this exemption.

• S.B. 1324 recognizes that such vehicles constitute a small portion of the vehicle fleet and are well-maintained and infrequently operated.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Arizona Senate Natural Resources and Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for S.B. 1324.

Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at [email protected]. Thank you for your assistance.
