    Two points about that:
    1. Check your state registration card. The model year, at least as they have it in their records, is listed on it in the Model Yr field at the upper right. I guess this bill operates only on that data - if it passes.
    2. When you are in touch with the Committee you might additionally petition them to bump the limit up by a year. There's no explanation about why they capped the exemption at 1982.

    I will do the same thing, come to think of it, in a second reply to the Committee. No harm in asking.
    The registration card is stating it was licensed in 2013 and itís a 1983 model. The date first sold is 00/00/0000. Funny, as I never noticed that before.
    I will write them a letter and letís hope they will consider our requests.

    The following information was included in the bill:

    "Provides a partial smog check exemption for a collector motor vehicle if the vehicle owner can demonstrate that the vehicle is insured as a collector motor vehicle, the vehicle is at least 35 model-years old (e.g., 1984 model year), the vehicle complies with certain exhaust emissions standards, and passes a functional inspection of the fuel cap and a visual inspection for liquid fuel leaks. Specifically, a collector motor vehicle is exempt from a visual or functional check of emission control devices, including the catalytic converter."

    I don't think I have "collector" insurance. I wonder if I can get AAA to provide a letter. Mine's an 83.

    Thanks for asking.

    Apparently the wheels in this committee turn pretty slowly.

    As of right now the bill still sits in the committee. I can't see anything more detailed than that - I check the status about twice a week.

    Status is listed this link. for folks to follow the fun.

    Update: The bill looks dead for at least this assembly session.

    No action is listed for this bill since the Transportation Committee hearing in late March. The deadline for bills to advance to the Assembly has passed.

    Maybe next year....
