But in 2007 we will all have to conform to federal laws that require all states to have car inspections and the same damn emission standards as California. It will also effect outboard motors and lawnmowers

You dont quite get the picture. The current types of Inspections will go out the window. no more jim bobs best friend will pass you for 50 bucks. The Federal Government is taking over the process and will be monitoring. They are investing billions into equiptment trhat will check cars, boats, Trucks, Farm equipment, Motorcycles for emission violations. The fine has been set a $5,000 charged to the state for every car that has passed inspection but fails a Federal on the spot inspection

Oh you can thank ol Clinton Gore for that really great piece of legislation. Clinton signed the bill with less than 6 months left in office
