A proposed bill to limit inspections on new cars died today in the House-Senate Joint Transportation Oversight Committee. The bill would have exempted vehicles three or fewer model years old from inspections. Supporters argued that such inspections were unnecessary as new model cars rarely failed the inspections. The inspection program has also suffered from reports of widespread fraud. Opponents stated they were concerned about potential safety violations and the impact the bill would have on thousands of inspection station operators across the state. The committee voted against the bill by a 7-5 margin.

Jerry Tillman REPUBLICAN said there are 7,000 garage owners who need this income… well then by all means favor the few over the many the way you have been GOP- hey I have noticed ALL my fees have gone up since the conservatives took power- so who do they work for… follow the money or just see who is sleeping with which lobbyist…

It’s impossible to find who voted to kill this bill. What about the “peoples’ right to know”? Why do these “representatives” hide their actions?
