Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 149 - This act which would place the BAR90 motor vehicle inspection and maintenance program, currently administered solely in Franklin County, entirely under the rulemaking jurisdiction of the Missouri Air Conservation Commission. Rulemaking authority is currently granted to the Superintendent of the Missouri Highway Patrol.

The act revises language regarding certificates and stickers by requiring that a certificate of approval be issued according to Commission rule for vehicles which are inspected and found to comply with the standards. Inspection station owners shall no longer be required to purchase forms and stickers from the Highway Patrol and are required to furnish forms and stickers of approval as required by Commission rule. There is an exemption from testing for historic vehicles registered pursuant to 301.131.

Under the act, fees for BAR90 motor vehicle emissions inspections shall be collected by the Department of Natural Resources, rather than the Highway Patrol. All such fee revenues shall be used solely by the Department of Natural Resources to administer and enforce the BAR90 motor vehicle emissions inspection program.

This act is similar to SB 791 from 2000. OTTO FAJEN AND CINDY KADLEC
