February 16, 2006|by TAMELA BAKER

ANNAPOLIS - Del. LeRoy E. Myers, R-Washington/Allegany, informed the House Environmental Matters Committee that, at the request of the Maryland State Police, he is withdrawing a bill to authorize a licensed inspection station to inspect windows with after-market window tint on a motor vehicle.

Myers told the committee that the state police are addressing the problem through state code changes.

Capt. Tom Williams of the Maryland State Police told the committee that police officials are working on the change, but warned that "it will take time." Williams said the police asked Myers to withdraw the bill.

But Del. Barbara Frush, D-Anne Arundel/Prince George's, said she had some concerns about tinted car windows.

"There are a lot of cars going up and down our roads that are blacked out," she said.

Myers assured her the state police were working toward letting inspection stations regulate tinting.
