California State Senator Dean Florez has modified Senate Bill 708 which originally threatened to repeal the state's current rolling emissions test exemption for motor vehicles 30 years old and older. It sought to revoke the current pro-industry/ pro-hobbyist exemption and replace it with an exemption for vehicles that are 45 or more model years old commencing January 1, 2005. A SEMA-drafted alternative that beefs up the existing California law prohibiting the operation of "smoking" motor vehicles will replace the original bill.
