A Message From SEMA About The California Bill to Exempt pre-1981 Vehicles From Emissions Inspection Requirement

This is a message for California residents from SEMA

In 2004, legislation was enacted to repeal California’s rolling emissions-test exemption for vehicles 30 years old and older and replace it with a law requiring the lifetime testing of all 1976 and newer model-year vehicles.

This year, a bill has been introduced in the California Senate (S.B. 1224) by Senator Doug LaMalfa ( to exempt all motor vehicles prior to the 1981 model year from the emissions inspection requirement.

The bill will be considered in the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee on March 27, 2012.

We Urge You to Contact All Members of the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately To Request Their Support for S.B. 1224
