In 1979, the Special Joint Committee on the Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program was created when the Motor Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) was established within the Motor Vehicle Administration (Chapter 421, Acts of 1979). The Committee was not active, however, until 1988 when the Program was continued (Chapter 108, Acts of 1988).
The Committee consulted with the Secretary of the Environment and the Secretary of Transportation on the administration of the Motor Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program. The Committee also advised them on any contract made by the Motor Vehicle Administration and the Secretary of the Environment for administering the Program.
Six members constituted the Committee: three senators appointed by the Senate President and three delegates appointed by the House Speaker (Code Transportation Article, sec. 23-203(c)).
The Committee last met in July 1992.
