S 309. Legislative findings.  1.  The legislature hereby finds and
  declares that the safety of the motoring  public depends on a modern
  system of periodic motor vehicle inspection.
    2.  In  nineteen hundred fifty-nine New York state recognized the need
  for inspection of motor vehicles  to  assure  its  citizens  that  their
  safety would be protected by removing from its highways those cars whose
  mechanical condition did not meet rigid standards of safety.
    3.  The  introduction  of  anti-pollution  devices and newly developed
  safety attachments to  modern  automobiles  requires  that  experimental
  inspection  stations be established to permit the testing of new methods
  of periodic motor vehicle inspection.
    4. The creation of new techniques of periodic motor vehicle inspection
  has become the concern of the federal government, and federal funds  are
  now  available  for  the  development  of criteria for modern inspection
  methods.   Therefore, legislation  should  be  enacted  to  promote  the
  advancement of the periodic motor vehicle inspection program in New York
  state.

    S 309-a. Establishment of experimental motor vehicle inspection
  stations.   The commissioner of motor vehicles  is  hereby  directed  to
  establish, maintain and/or conduct experimental motor vehicle inspection
  stations, by contract or pursuant to an appropriation made therefor, for
  the  purpose  of making the inspection prescribed by article five of the
  vehicle and traffic law and for the purpose of issuing  certificates  of
  inspection.

    S 309-b. Federal funds. The commissioner is hereby authorized to seek
  and obtain federal funds to establish, maintain and/or conduct such
  experimental motor vehicle inspection stations.

  S 309-c. Contracts.  The commissioner may in his discretion enter into
  contracts with other outside agencies to provide testing devices, supply
  facilities, maintain and conduct experimental motor vehicle  inspections
  under his direction and supervision.

  S 309-d. Fees.  The schedule of fees charged by such an experimental
  motor vehicle inspection station  for  making  the  inspection required
  shall be subject to the approval of the commissioner, provided, however,
  that such fees shall provide sufficient revenue, either by themselves or
  when combined with any federal funds made available to the commissioner,
  to  meet  the  total  costs of the experimental motor vehicle inspection
  program herein established.

 S 309-e. Reports.  The commissioner shall, not later than January
  first, nineteen hundred seventy-eight, submit to the governor and to the
  legislature a report on the operation and maintenance of such stations.
