Description of Petition: Vehicle Emission Testing - Inspection & Maintenance Program: The proposed regulation will clarify and update the Inspection & Maintenance (I/M) provisions of NAC 445B and bring them into alignment with the NRS. The amendments will bring diesel vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) from 8,500 up to and including 10,000 pounds into the I/M program as per AB 36. It will also align the Clark County I/M program area in the NAC with what is in the Nevada I/M State Implementation Plan as well as clarify which areas are included in the Washoe County I/M program and which are exempt. This regulation will have an economic effect on selected diesel vehicle owners and fleets. In the emissions testing areas of Washoe and Clark Counties, diesel-powered vehicles with a GVWR noted above will require an annual test before registering. Each year, Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) sets a maximum fee for emissions tests; in 2004, it was $39.00 in Clark and $36.00 in Washoe Counties respectively.
