MARYLAND INTRODUCES LEGISLATION TO EXEMPT OLD CARS FROM EMISSIONS TESTS

A bill has been introduced to the Maryland House of Delegates to exempt vehicles more than 25 years old from the state’s mandatory biennial emissions inspection and maintenance program.  Existing law in Maryland only exempts vehicles manufactured before the '77 model year from emissions inspection.  A hearing on the bill has been scheduled for March 21 in the House Environmental Matters Committee. The measure 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.
