NH Bill Allows Stations to Set Inspection Fees.

The New Hampshire Union Leader reported last week that negotiators from the state's House of Representatives and Senate have agreed on a final version of a bill that would allow service stations to set their own fees for the state's new on-board diagnostic (OBD)-based vehicle emissions inspection.

According to the Union Leader, the bill, which must now pass both the state House and Senate, requires service stations to monitor OBD readings on all model year 1996 vehicles and newer. The newspaper said effective May 1, 2006, the state government will offer waivers to low-income vehicle owners to help offset the cost of repairs detected by the OBD equipment.

The Union Leader noted that the state House version of the bill had limited the OBD test fee to $15, while the state Senate version did not cap fees. As part of the compromise bill, negotiators have formed an advisory committee that will monitor testing fees statewide.
