2.   Rules were adopted revising ch. Trans 131, relating to the Motor Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance Program.
FINDING OF EMERGENCY
The Department of Transportation finds that an emergency exists and a rule is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public health, safety and welfare. A statement of the facts constituting the emergency is that Southeastern Wisconsin is currently unable to meet federal air quality standards. Southeastern Wisconsin is one of nine regions in the United States designated as areas with “severe” air pollution problems. This air quality problem results in all area residents breathing air that is not healthy.
Since motor vehicles are the largest contributor to the area's air quality problem, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation finds that an emergency exists regarding the public health. The enhanced I/M program resulting from the proposed rule is a necessary part of the state's plan to achieve the volatile organic compound (VOC) emission reductions required by the Clean Air Act. The program will account for over one-third of the VOC reductions required by Wisconsin's 15% VOC Reduction Plan. By implementing the changes proposed in the rule, the air quality in Southeastern Wisconsin area can be improved. If such improvement does not occur, other more costly controls on small business and industry would be required. By taking action at this time, the major and most cost effective measure is utilized to meet Wisconsin's clean air goal.
