Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Makes a technical change in a
Section concerning emission inspections.
FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Environmental Protection Agency)
This legislation can be implemented by IEPA with no additional
cost because the on-board diagnostic testing has been used on
an advisory only basis since November of 1999.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Deletes reference to:
625 ILCS 5/13A-101 from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 13A-101
Adds reference to:
625 ILCS 5/13A-115 from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 13A-115
625 ILCS 5/13B-25
Deletes everything. Amends the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Law
of 1995 (Chapter 13B of the Illinois Vehicle Code). Specifies certain
inspection procedures that must be followed on model year 1996 and
newer vehicles equipped with on-board computer diagnostic equipment.
Until January 1, 2004, allows the owners of certain vehicles to avoid
the loaded mode exhaust gas analysis or idle exhaust gas analysis by
choosing to repair the vehicles to a higher standard. Repeals Chapter
13A of the Illinois Vehicle Code (now obsolete) on January 1, 2003.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Provides that the owner of a vehicle that fails to meet the
standard for the complete on-board computer diagnostic test must be
informed that he or she has the option to have the vehicle tested
using the less stringent loaded mode exhaust gas analysis or the idle
exhaust gas analysis, as appropriate, for one test cycle. Provides
that the on-board computer diagnostic test is not required for
vehicles with known on-board diagnostic communications or software
problems, as determined by the IEPA. Provides that by April 15, 2003,
the IEPA shall submit to the General Assembly a report detailing the
effectiveness of the use of the on-board computer diagnostic test.
Requires the report to include the number of failures, the reason for
each failure, the number of vehicle damage complaints, and the average
wait time at the test stations.
