Car Inspection Bill Could be Put Off for the Next Session

May 14, 2018 - 10:26 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Time is running out for Missouri lawmakers to remove the "safety" portion from the state's vehicle inspection program.  

Bill opponent Ron Reiling with the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers in Missouri says over the past few weeks it was kicked to the Senate and added to a transportation bill there.

He says there wasn't enough support, so it was sent to a conference committee and removed.

Reiling says House Bill 14-44 "technically" remains alive. 

“If it’s not through by Tuesday or Wednesday it’s not going to happen this year, because if the house were to vote to perfect it and send the bill to the senate, they would have to go through whole process and have a public hearing,” he says.

The legislative session ends Friday, so Reiling thinks it stands a better chance of being called for a vote in the following session.
