California Emissions Tests Changes Proposed

A.B. 859 ignores the minimal impact vintage cars have on air quality.

A.B. 859 could entice vintage car owners into allowing these vehicles to be scrapped.

A.B. 859 ignores the fact that vehicles 15-years old and older still constitute a small portion of the overall vehicle population and are a poor source from which to look for emissions reduction.

A.B. 859 ignores the fact that classic vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven.

A.B. 859 would increase costs by creating an annual inspection fee for owners of these vehicles.

A.B. 859 represents another attempt by California legislators and regulators to scapegoat older cars.

Please contact members of the California Assembly Transportation Committee immediately by phone to request their opposition to A.B. 859.
