Some Idaho auto dealers may voluntarily sell cleaner cars

While this story is pretty Washington-centric, I found the excerpt below to be pretty interesting.

Jim Addis, general manager of Coeur d'Alene's Tom Addis Dodge and Lake City Ford Lincoln Mercury, said he'll stock only cars that meet California standards.

"It doesn't cost me any more," he said, "and then our customers can't have any conceivable problem."

I know I am beginning the sound like a broken record, but again...if auto dealers in Kootenai County are going to start selling these cleaner burning cars, why are we starting a vehicle emissions inspection and maintenance program?
