Bill targets metal thefts
U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and U.S. Representative Erik Paulsen (R-MN) have introduced bipartisan federal legislation to stem the growing endemic of metal thefts.
The bipartisan bill, which would deter thieves from a lucrative practice of stealing high-priced metal from public and private infrastructure, was introduced Thursday in the Senate.
Paulsen introduced the legislation in the House with representatives Bart Stupak (D-MI) and Lee Terry (R-NE).
