HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Beginning July 1 Mississippi registered vehicles will no longer be required to have an inspection sticker.

Governor Phil Bryant said the $5 sticker in the state will soon be eliminated. He said the bill is making its way to his desk, but once it gets there he will sign it into law.

“It's not something that I champion, I understand the will of the legislature to do away with it,” said Governor Bryant. “I am concerned that there are some other automobiles, older ones in particular, and I hope we find a way in the future to be able to determine what automobiles are safe and which ones are not to be on the road again, but a $5 sticker is probably not the best way to do it.”

House Bill 982 does not apply to vehicles with tinted windows.  Vehicles with tints will still have to get a one-time inspection.
