(St. Paul, MN)  —  The Minnesota Senate is considering a bill aimed at slowing the rate of catalytic converter thefts.  The bill focuses on potential criminal penalties for scrap recyclers who buy the stolen parts.  Scrap yards would be required to report all purchases of the part in an online database.  The legislation would also require detached catalytic converters to be marked with vehicle identification numbers.  The Senate tabled the bill yesterday before it went to a full vote.
