Texas is one of the minority of states still requiring annual inspections. I believe that safety inspections are a money grab hidden behind a fig leaf of “public safety”. Having said that, I do think there are valid reasons for smog inspections if Texas or more local governments decide they are helpful to reduce air pollution in affected areas. Controlling air pollution is not an enumerated power assigned to the federal govt. /end of rant
Anyhow, the bill can be followed here. The state senator for District 2 (Rains, Delta, Fannin, Hopkins, Hunt, Kaufman, Rockwall, Van Zandt counties, and portions of Dallas and Smith) is Bob Hall. His office phone number in Rockwall is (972) 722-3131. My guess is the number is manned only by an answering machine but if you have an opinion you might want to phone it in.
