KMPO Weighs In On Auto Emissions Testing
At the KMPO Board meeting this week, Board members will be presented a white paper outlining some of KMPO's concerns with House Bill 586, which will require automobile emission inspection and maintenance program in some Idaho metropolitan areas. Kootenai County may be subject to this new law. Before the bill was signed by the governor, KMPO conveyed a number of concerns to the Governor's office. Read the letter KMPO sent to the governor on March 31. Despite KMPO’s concerns, however, the law was passed on April 1. KMPO Staff have prepared a white paper that outlines some of the major issues. Read it here then give us your opinion, is vehicle emissions testing the answer?
