A bill that would let motorists get two-year inspection stickers won approval Monday morning in the House Transportation Committee.
The measure, Senate Bill 601, has already passed the state Senate.
It next faces action in the full House.
Under current rules, motorists pay $10 for an annual car or truck inspection sticker.
The bill would allow them to pay $20 for a safety check that would be effective for two years.
Action on the bill was delayed one week amid questions on whether the change should only apply to cars and truck that are no more than five years old.
But state Police Superintendent Mike Edmonson told the committee that two-year stickers are becoming increasingly common around the nation.
Edmonson said new car dealers already have the authority to offer buyers two-year inspection stickers.
