Texas Senate votes to end state inspection starting March 2018!!!!

Please pass please pass please pass please pass....

Emissions testing would still be required in counties requiring air quality testing, but it's not that hard to get your vehicle registered in a county that doesn't.

All the places that generate revenue on inspections only....wonder if they have lobbyists trying to prevent the gov. from signing it.

oh wonderful, more people without headlights or tail lights in rainstorms. More blown tires and axle shards on the interstate.

State inspections are a joke. I don't see how a business can not lose money on every transaction at a charge of $7. Good riddance.

Now it is real shame that this bill has gained so much traction and HB 276 has died off...

That would be the bill making it no longer a requirement to have a front license plate, you know like every state that borders us...

I live in KS...no state inspection. The cars are no worse here than in TX. I don't think a state inspection really does much.

If anything, this will kill a lot of excess money for shops that are illegally passing people. No more $110 for people to get their car passed because of missing cats lol

Well remember, it's the state inspection. Emissions testing will still be performed.
So if you're in a major city, they'd still check you for Cats and emission :/
