Thank you for contacting my office to convey your views regarding
Assembly Bill 3053 (Jones), a bill which would have required older and
classic vehicles to obtain an annual Smog Check clearance.  I appreciate
hearing from you.

AB 3053, a bill which originally related to domestic relations, had
passed both houses of the Legislature and was on the Governor's desk
when the author had the bill pulled from the Governor's desk and
returned to the Senate.  The author had the bill gutted and amended on
August 22 to include content virtually identical to his AB 616 from last
year.  The bill was subsequently assigned to the Senate Appropriations
Committee; however, it died without a hearing.  Consistent with my
opposition to AB 616, I was similarly opposed to AB 3053 as written.

Again, thank you for taking the time to express your concerns.  Please
feel free to communicate with me in the future on other issues of


Senator, First District
