A bill (H.B. 2357) to exempt qualified collectible vehicles 15 years old and
older from the state's mandatory emissions inspection and maintenance
program has been approved by the Arizona State Legislature. Qualifying
vehicles would have to maintain appropriate collectible or classic
automobile insurance to retain these benefits. The bill now moves to
Governor Napolitano's office for her signature.
