Attention California Rodders a CA Legislator is after you again

Immediate Action Needed!

California Lawmaker Trying to Sneak by a Bill to Require ANNUAL Emissions Tests for Vehicles
15-Years Old and Older

Committee Hearing set for August 28. Call Now!!!

In an effort to avoid public scrutiny, California Assemblyman Dave Jones (Assemblymember.jones@assembly.ca.gov) has amended a completely unrelated bill with language to require annual Smog check inspections for vehicles 15-years old and older. This represents an obvious attempt to sneak through legislation in the closing days of the legislative session that had been previously defeated (A.B. 616). The new bill is designated as A.B. 3053.

While pre-1976 motor vehicles would remain exempt under existing California law, this proposal 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. Furthermore, the bill would direct that the funds generated through annual inspection fees be used to scrap older cars. This represents another attempt by California legislators and regulators to scapegoat older cars.

This is the type of activity that fuels distrust in public officials. SEMA caught this lawmakerís underhanded attempt to circumvent public process and is now calling on you to help defeat A.B 3053 before itís too late.

Time is of the Essence! We Urge You to Call the California Senate Appropriations Committee (List Below) Immediately to Oppose A.B. 3053

I would like to see a technician stand behind the 354 hemi in my Willys getting a pollution check. A few seconds back there brings tears to your eyes and chokes off your breathing tubes. Approach a minute and we would have to call out the paramedics!!

I was given this a few days ago from a car club member. I live in CA and they just don't give up. Eventually they'll pass this just like gay marriages. Arizona keeps looking better everyday. What's really sad is CA doesn't have a budget and is now 19 billion in the hole. State workers are working at minimum wage to help with the budget and the others have been laid off. They should focus on that and not smog regulations.

Even if the public rejects these things by an 80% vote, the uber-liberal (might I say Marxist?) state supreme court throws out that mandate and establishes whatever law it wants anyway.
