ATTN: CA residents. New smog proposal. Fight this!

Sorry for the dual post (envirobeat) but I felt that it was necessary. These attacks on our vehicles have got to stop!

I got this in an email from moss motors. Please respond appropriately to our politicians. I am sick of them using our cars as scapegoats.


In an effort to avoid public scrutiny, California Assemblyman Dave Jones ( 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
