  • H.B. 351 recognizes the minimal impact of collectible vehicles on emissions and air quality.   
  • H.B. 351 acknowledges that collectible vehicles constitute a small portion of the overall vehicle population and are a poor source from which to look for emissions reduction.
  • H.B. 351 endorses the fact that collectible vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven.  

Overview: Legislation (H.B. 351) to exempt rare or historically significant vehicles, as determined by the state, from emissions control requirements was passed by the House of Representatives and now moves to the Senate Transportation Committee for consideration.  Under current law, only vehicles 20 or more years old are exempt.
