Bill allowing counties to set vehicle emissions inspections passes committee
SALT LAKE CITY — A measure aimed at changing how often vehicles would be required to have emissions inspections passed out of a legislative committee Tuesday.
HB210 would allow counties to implement a new vehicle emissions inspection and maintenance program based on the air quality needs of the area.
Supporters say the proposal would give Utah counties the flexibility needed to set emissions inspection standards based on the environmental requirements of the individual county. The measure received a unanimous vote in the Senate Transportation and Public Utilities and Technology Committee. It now goes before the full Senate.
