CARSON CITY, Nev. — Hot rods and classic cars will be getting more of a break on pollution laws.
Gov. Brian Sandoval has signed a bill that cuts out a mandatory emissions evaluation on a classic car if the owner proves it hasn't been driven more than 5,000 miles in the previous year.
Existing law allows special license plates for old cars that give them a break on smog standards. The new law adds a $6 fee when the license plate is first issued and funnels the money to the DMV's pollution control account.
It also closes a loophole so car owners don't sign up for the plates just to skirt smog rules.
The bill was sponsored by Reno Republican Assemblyman Randy Kirner and North Las Vegas Democratic Assemblywoman Marilyn Kirkpatrick.
