Legislation pending to exempt vehicles under three years old from emissions testing

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, TN (WRCB) -- Proposed legislation would exempt automobiles under three years old from Tennessee's vehicle emission test.

The legislation, co-sponsored by Speaker Pro Tempore Bo Watson (R-Hixson), Senator Todd Gardenhire (R-Chattanooga) and House Transportation Committee Chairman Vince Dean (R-East Ridge) would apply to owners of vehicles in the six Tennessee counties where emissions testing is required, which include Hamilton County.  
 
Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of up to 10,500 pounds in Hamilton, Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson or Wilson Counties must currently pass an annual emissions test prior to registration renewal.  

The proposed Senate Bill 1080 would exempt the testing for gasoline and diesel vehicles if the automobile's model is three years old or newer.
