View the rest of House Bill 4595: History, Amendments & Comments
To expand a scrap metal dealer regulatory regime authorized by a 2008 law that imposed new regulations and record keeping requirements on sales of nonferrous scrap metal, so that it also applies to sales of scrap iron (ferrous metals). This and House Bill 4593 would require the scrap metal industry to create a real time database of each purchase by a scrap metal dealer of "scrapped" catalytic converters, air conditioners and stripped copper wire; until it did so the bill would impose a three-day delay on payments to individuals who sell these things. It would also require dealers to check sellers against this database, keep photographs of the purchased scrap metal, and more.
