The New Hampshire House introduced legislation to exempt vehicles 10 or more model years old from emissions test requirements.
Legislation to exempt vehicles 10 or more model years old from emissions test requirements was introduced in the New Hampshire House. Under current law, only vehicles 20 or more years old are exempt. The bill would also exempt a vehicle for an indication of failure if the owner verifies that he or she has spent $100 or more unsuccessfully attempting to repair the cause of the failure and the vehicle passes all other inspection requirements. Separate legislation to exempt rare or historically significant vehicles, as determined by the state, from emissions-control requirements was also introduced.
