Well, it's done. Governor Otter signed the emissions testing bill into law today, saying that it is the most cost effective way to deal with ozone in the urbanized areas of the state. However, he said that he has agreement from the legislature to work on minor changes to the bill in the 2009 session. In the meantime, KMPO staff will be working with Department of Environmental Quality, the business community and our elected officials to come up with a program that will work in Kootenai County. Here is a link to the Governor's signing message.
