LA Governor Approves Local Emissions Testing Fee Increase.
Under the law, the paper noted that residents of the specified parishes, who will now pay $8 more than those residing in other areas of the state, are also prohibited from having testing conducted outside of their localities in an attempt to avoid the fee increase.
"With ozone nonattainment we are trying to do everything we can, not only because of health implications but other concerns too," said Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality deputy secretary Karen Gautreaux.
