A bill under consideration by the Legislature would eliminate the requirement that all vehicles obtain inspection stickers.

The bill, proposed by state Rep. Larry Bagley, R-Stonewall, would change the current law that requires all vehicles registered in the state to be inspected and get a sticker. If the bill passes as written, only commercial vehicles, school buses and some vehicles covered by the Clean Air Act would be required to get annual inspections. 

Law enforcement officers could still pull someone over if their vehicle wasn't properly equipped or was unsafe, and could still ticket people who don't have proper equipment, under the bill. 

Currently, the bill has been referred to committee, but hasn't been heard yet.
