The bill that would have required motorcycles to have smog checks has been watered down. Senator Fran Pavley agreed to drop the smog test provision.
Pavley originally stated that bikes “are more polluting than cars and that owners often make them worse by removing the catalytic converters”. Opponents pointed out that bikes get more miles to the gallon, and a smog check would be the equivalent of a stealth tax.
The bill now has to be approved by the State Assembly and would then be put in front of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
