That's OK, I have no plans to ever go to CA again. By 2024 I will probably not be able to drive that far anyway!

Air quality is important to most Californians. Testing diesels in our state for emissions isn’t a game or frivolous. I remember not being allowed to go outside to play in the 50s and early 60s and I don’t want to return to those bad air times.

Probably won't hold up as that falls under interstate commerce which is clearly delineated as Federal Jurisdiction. As long as you meet your home state's rules, they can't prohibit you.

Local Californians...not so much.

On top of that, you have the practicality or trying to manage it. Are they really going to stop every out of state vehicle entering the state.

Vahalla360,

You have obviously not watched as California has ignored numerous federal statures over the recent years. This is standard practice there and they work it up to the constitutional level.

It’s not an interstate commerce issue for heaven’s sake! No nexus between sellIng/transporting goods and MH diesel emissions. Closer to a freedom to travel claim but still not within the square. Congress has long allowed California to set its own, more strict, air quality standards. And who regulates interstate commerce? Congress.

And not just Class A's. Lot's of C's with Mercedes Diesel engines. Don't know if they are over 14,000 pounds, though.
