Legislation (S.B. 723) has been introduced in the Connecticut State Legislature to extend the emissions inspection exemption to vehicles 5 model years old or newer. Current law exempts vehicles that are 4 model years old or newer.

We Urge You to Contact Connecticut Joint Transportation Committee Members (Contact Information Below) Immediately to Request Support for S.B. 723

• S.B. 723 acknowledges the relatively minimal environmental impact of the vehicles targeted for this exemption.

• S.B. 723 acknowledges that it is senseless to test newer vehicles, the results of which demonstrate no significant air quality benefits. The idea behind exempting any class of vehicles is to reduce costs while not losing appreciable emission reductions. This strategy builds support for emission inspection programs, but also directs finite resources to where they will be most valuable in cleaning the air.

• Connecticut already exempts all vehicles that are 25 model years old and older from emissions testing. The logic for this trend is clear; such vehicles do not contribute in significant ways to air quality problems. This logic applies equally to newer cars.

DON’T DELAY! Please contact members of the Connecticut Joint Transportation Committee immediately to request their support for S.B. 723.

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

This.

I hate driving behind cars without catalytic converters. The general public shouldn't have to get choked out by exhaust fumes just because someone wants their obnoxiously loud or to gain a few horsepower.

The minority. Most cars in this range are clean. The test only presents a burdensome task to owners.
