Mo. Anti-Safety Inspection Bill Reintroduced
Jan. 25, 2019—Legislation was recently reintroduced in the Missouri Legislature that seeks to repeal the state’s vehicle safety inspection program.
The news was not well received by the Automotive Service Association.
“There are approximately 15 state vehicle inspection programs,” noted ASA mechanical division director Tom Piippo, in a press release. “With the number of recalls and rapidly increasing vehicle technologies, the trend should be for more state inspection programs, not less.
"Missouri’s program is one of the best in the nation, and ASA has profiled it in hearings in Washington, D.C., and in other states. Any effort to repeal the program is nonsensical.”
