URGENT LEGISLATIVE ALERT (UPDATE)
Legislation (S.B. 61) to extend the emissions inspection exemption to vehicles that have not yet reached their 10th model year was denied approval by the Colorado Senate Transportation Committee on a 3-1 vote. Current law only exempts vehicles that are 4 model years old or newer. The bill would have also exempted previously registered motor vehicles that have never failed an emissions control inspection and created a senior citizen hardship exemption whereby a senior citizen could register one motor vehicle without obtaining an emissions inspection.
