It looks as if more and more people are voicing their thoughts on auto emission testing and suggesting that the test are no longer needed.

Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland stated on Wednesday that in his opinion, the emission testing of newer vehicles is a waste of time



A bill introduced in state legislators sponsored by two Chattanooga lawmakers says that the testing is no longer necessary because Tennessee is now in compliance with federal clean air standards.

Opponents of the bill say the state's vehicle emissions testing in metro areas is an important tool to ensure clean air.

The bills to end emission testing is gaining momentum and picking up additional sponsors in the state as of Monday (2/12/18).

The Bill (SB 2656 and HB 1782):

Motor Vehicles - As introduced, bans counties in attainment status from entering into or renewing contracts regarding vehicle inspection and maintenance programs to maintain compliance with national ambient air quality standards. - Amends TCA Title 55 and Title 68.
