H.B. 2357 defines collectible vehicles as 15 years old or older, of unique
or rare design, of limited production and an object of curiosity and
maintained primarily for car club activities, exhibitions, parades, etc. and
is used infrequently for other purposes.
H.B. 2357 provides for a rolling 15-year emissions inspection exemption that
would exempt qualifying vehicles upon enactment and would pick up an
additional model year for each year the law is in effect.
H.B. 2357 provides for an emissions inspection exemption for collectible
vehicles for which the owner holds appropriate insurance coverage.
H.B. 2357 acknowledges the relatively minimal environmental impact of older
vehicles, such as the older vehicles targeted for this exemption.
H.B. 2357 recognizes that such vehicles constitute a small portion of the
vehicle fleet and are well-maintained and infrequently operated.
