1An Act to amend
285.30 (5) (a) of the statutes; relating to: exempting motor
2vehicles that are at least 10 model years old from emissions testing.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill exempts from motor vehicle emissions limitations motor vehicles of a
model year not less than 10 years old.
Under federal law, Wisconsin is required to conduct a motor vehicle inspection
and maintenance program in specified counties. Under current Wisconsin law and
Department of Natural Resources rules, emissions limitations are specified for all
motor vehicles not exempted under law. Current law exempts from emissions
limitations any motor vehicle of a model year of 1995 or earlier. This bill changes this
exemption to apply to any vehicle with a model year of not less than 10 years old.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
285.30 (5) (a) of the statutes is amended to read:
(a) A motor vehicle of a model year
of 1995 or earlier not less than
510 years old
