MI House Passes Legislation to Deter Theft



The Michigan House passed legislation yesterday (Wed) designed to help deter
metal theft. The bill would require that metal recyclers not offer cash for
three commonly-stolen items: catalytic converters, copper wire and air
conditioning units. Rather, they would have to pay for these items with small
on-the-spot debit card transactions. If the total topped $25, metal scrappers
would have to mail out checks.
