2013 Senate Bill 470: Create scrap metal theft offenders registry
  1. Introduced by Sen. Virgil Smith (D) on September 10, 2013, to require an individual convicted for stealing scrap metal and related offenses to register on a state “scrap metal offenders registry” and pay an extra $50 for this. Scrap metal dealers would have to check sellers against this registry before buying metal from them, and would have a $1 fee per transaction imposed on their scrap metal purchases.
    • Referred to the Senate Economic Development Committee on September 10, 2013.
