Washington Introduces Bill to Exempt Collectible Vehicles From Emissions Test Requirement

IMG_2259_-_Washington_DC_-_US_CapitolLegislation H.B. 2359 to exempt collectible vehicles of any age from emissions testing was introduced in the Washington State House of Representatives recently. The bill will be considered by the House Environment Committee.

Here are the details:

  • H.B. 2359 defines collectible vehicles as a vehicle of unique or rare design, of limited production, and an object of curiosity that is maintained primarily for use in car club activities, exhibitions, parades, or other functions of public interest or for a private collection, and is used only infrequently for other purposes.
  • H.B. 2359 requires that the vehicle have collectible vehicle or classic automobile insurance coverage that restricts the collectible vehicle mileage or use, or both, and requires the owner to have another vehicle for personal use.
  • H.B. 2359 recognizes the minimal impact of collectible vehicles on emissions and air quality.
  • H.B. 2359 acknowledges that collectible vehicles constitute a small portion of the overall vehicle population and are a poor source from which to look for emissions reduction.
  • H.B. 2359 endorses the fact that collectible vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven.
