Default Upcoming diesel emission laws.

So from what I was told is that there is going to be emission testing starting 2015. Anyone know more about this?

Must be a boat load of tree hugging Cali Democrats moving to Texas in an attempt to turn the State from Red to Purple them Blue.

It was bound to happen, spreads like a plague

If it happens, I'm sure it will only be for the counties that are doing emissions testing on the gassers.

According to what I have found it is the entire state inspection system. Its S.B. 1350 for all of you who want to look it up. My understanding is that basically were all screwed. Its passed in house unanimously.

My buddy who does emissions here in granbury told me next year my truck probably wont pass and that ill need a pipe coupler because the emission system wont fit on my exhaust
Though from what I have also read is that if they are testing for the same emissions gas engines send out I should pass because gas engines put out a remarkable amount of carbon monoxide and diesels put out little to none. So I really dont know. Hence why I started a thread lol.

They have had emissions on diesel in salt lake since day one. It's really not that hard to deal with. My truck passes (legally) every year. Spend an afternoon once a year making it legal...whoopty dooo...now you know why I NEVER sell off stock parts. I have every single piece I need sitting in my garage to put my truck back to 100% stock.

Even if my stupid tree hugging hippie state passed emissions standards I would still be good. Lb7 ftw!

Rick perry is and has always been a back door liberal. Our neighbors to the north got it right when they told the state we are not doing inspections anymore. There is no law requiring any buisness in texas to do an inspection. Just saying

I know when I lived in cali 06 and under were exempt from emissions or so I was told and never got notice or fined for not smogging. I just hope its that way here. Im sure there will be a lot of changes and by laws added before its in full swing.
