 Notice of Public Hearing for the adoption of Regulations
of the Department of Motor Vehicles


The Department of Motor Vehicles will hold public hearings on the following dates and locations specified:

 Public Hearings

Time:              1:00 p.m.
Date:               June 26, 2002
Location:        Nevada Division of Wildlife
                        Conference Room B
                        1100 Valley Rd.
                        Reno, NV

Time:              1:00 p.m.
Date:               June 27, 2002
Location:        Grant Sawyer Bldg.
                        555 East Washington
                        Room 1100 1st Floor
                        Las Vegas, NV
                        (just east of L.V. Blvd)

The purpose of the hearings is to receive comments from all interested persons regarding the adoption of Regulations, concerning LCB File No. R178-01.

The proposed regulations amend chapter 445B of the Nevada Administrative Code to allow the department to implement an emission testing program known as On Board Diagnostics (OBD II). All light duty gasoline powered vehicles of model year 1996 and newer shall be tested by Nevada Licensed Emission Stations for the purpose of vehicle registration.

Persons wishing to comment upon the proposed action of the Department of Motor Vehicles may appear at the scheduled public workshops and hearings or may address their comments, data, view or arguments, in written form, to the Department of Motor Vehicles, 555 Wright Way, Carson City, NV 89711. Written submission must be received by the Department of Motor Vehicles on or before July 10, 2002. If no person who is directly affected by the proposed action appears to request time to make an oral presentation, the Department of Motor Vehicles may proceed immediately to act upon any written submissions. 

Because this is a voluntary program, there are no adverse economic effects of the regulations on the industry, as a whole. However, participants may incur initial start up costs for an authorized emission analyzer, a compressor and a dedicated telephone line.

If implemented, the proposed regulations will not have an adverse economic effect on the public.

The cost to the agency for the enforcement of the proposed regulations is minimal because existing staff currently conducts periodic audits of licensees.

The proposed amendments of regulations pertaining to Chapter 445B of the Nevada Administrative Code do not overlap or duplicate that of any other state or local governmental agency. This regulation is required pursuant to federal law, and the federal government regulates similar activities.

A copy of the proposed regulation to be adopted will be on file at the state library, 100 Stewart Street, Carson City, Nevada, for inspection by members of the public during business hours. Additional copies of the notice and the regulation to be adopted will be available at each office of the Department of Motor Vehicles listed, and the main public libraries listed, for inspection and copying by members of the public during regular business hours. This notice and the text of the proposed regulations are also available at the State of Nevada Register of Administrative Regulations, which is prepared and published monthly by the Legislative Council Bureau pursuant to NRS 233B. 0653 and on the Internet at Copies of this notice and the proposed Regulations will also be mailed to members of the public upon request. A reasonable fee may be charged for copies if it is deemed necessary.
