Short description: 
VEH CD-EMISSIONS-TECH                                                      

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.      
   Effective immediately.                                                      
        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.
