Tennessee recommends ending vehicle emissions testing in Hamilton County
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Those annual emissions tests may soon be coming to an end in Chattanooga.
State representative Mike Carter of Ooltewah made that statement on Twitter this afternoon.
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation completed its air quality study.
The agency is recommending an end to mandatory vehicle emissions testing in Hamilton County and Middle Tennessee.
Carter says it can help people avoid spending thousands of dollars to fix a check engine light in their car, just to get their tag renewed.
