Greater St. Louis Area Vehicle Repair Industry Survey
During the 2006 Missouri General Assembly, legislation was passed to change the vehicle emissions inspection and maintenance (I/M) program in St. Louis. We surveyed the vehicle repair industry to gather input on design options for the new program. A copy of the survey and its results can be found in the links below. The information that was compiled will be considered in the planning of the next I/M program. Proposed changes will take effect in September 2007.
