SIP Revision: Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) El Paso SIP

A revision of the SIP involving the El Paso area and the I/M rule.

On October 26, 2005, the commission adopted a program upgrade to the El Paso vehicle emissions testing program and corresponding revisions to Chapter 114 rules for the El Paso nonattainment area. This Web page discusses the TCEQ’s adoption package.


Summary of Adoption

Background
The adopted amendments revise rules related to the implementation of the state’s Motor Vehicle Emissions I/M program and a corresponding revision of the SIP. The adopted changes require two-speed idle (TSI) and onboard diagnostic (OBD) testing in the El Paso I/M program area beginning January 1, 2007. There were no changes to the current annual emissions test fee of $14. If the El Paso County Commissioners’ Court votes to participate in the Low Income Vehicle Repair Assistance, Retrofit, and Accelerated Vehicle Retirement Program (LIRAP), the emissions test fee would increase from $14 to $16 dollars.

Additionally, the adopted rule updates the vehicle emissions testing equipment specifications used in the I/M program areas to include a communication requirement, known as Controller Area Network (CAN).
