A local State Representative is hoping to limit the theft of catalytic converters that have increased as of late.

Steven Hewitt of Seekonk has issued a bill currently making its way through Beacon Hill that would leave a paper trail for a catalytic converter transaction.

Every person involved in the purchasing, selling, bartering or dealing in old metals shall include:

-Date of transaction for the old or used metals

-Name, address, telephone number, and signature of the person from whom the old or used metals were purchased or received

-A photocopy or digital image of the person’s photo identification

-License plate number and vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle used to transport the old or used metals to the licensee, whenever applicable

-A description of the old or used metals;

-A photograph of the old or used metals;

-Photocopies or digital images of the bill of sale or other legal document demonstrating ownership by the seller or offeror; and

-Price paid by the licensee for the old or used metals.

Today, the Senate concurred with the House to refer the bill to the Judiciary Committee.
