New Bill Significantly Reduces Paperwork Required From Car Dealers

The House of Representatives has just approved a new bill “enabling automobile dealers to bypass a law requiring them to provide emissions certification on cars and light trucks, a rule that auto dealers say adds burdensome red tape to the buying process.”

It’s not clear when the bill will move to Senate, but the general expectations are that it should pass easily there too. It has also received the support of auto dealers.
That doesn’t mean that vehicles won’t comply with emission standards anymore. It’s just that there’s already another compliance system in space, so there is no need to burden auto dealers with more paperwork.
