Under current law, a motor vehicle fails an emissions inspection

solely because a check engine light is illuminated on the motor vehicle's
dashboard, regardless of what the vehicle's actual emissions are. The bill
directs the air quality control commission to submit to the federal
environmental protection agency by May 5, 2021, a proposed revision to
the state implementation plan that would enable a vehicle that fails the
on-board diagnostics test solely because a check engine light is
illuminated on the vehicle's dashboard to undergo a tailpipe emissions
