Motorcycle Testing Ends

Looks like still needed until May.
Motorcycle Testing Ends

Many of you have been asking if we would stop
requiring motorcycle testing in the metro Phoenix
program area. As recently as this past summer, we
were not anticipating that the EPA would approve
Arizona’s request to terminate motorcycle testing.
Arizona submitted documentation demonstrating to
EPA that the testing of Phoenix area motorcycles
was not necessary on Nov. 10, 2010. We were
informed that EPA would approve this change in
spring of 2013. That time is here.
On Feb. 4, 2013, EPA approved Arizona’s plan,
which will result in the termination of motorcycle
testing in Arizona. Testing in the Tucson metro area
ended several years ago (April 2007). The exact
date that motorcycles will become exempt
testing has not been determined. Once posted in the
Federal Register, the legislation becomes effective
60 days later, which will likely be early May.
Nothing upsets a woman like a man at leisure.
