State lawmakers are considering a proposal to do away with inspection stickers for most vehicles.
The stickers certify the vehicles have passed a safety inspection and have been required since 1961. But House Bill 597 calls for now only requiring the stickers for commercial and student transportation vehicles.
Currently the law requires an inspection every other year, with part of the ten dollar fee going to the service station, the Louisiana State Police and the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles.
However, inspections would still be required in East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Iberville, Ascension and Livingston Parishes due to the federal Clean Air act.
