|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Railroad Material Theft Prevention|
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation that will restrict scrap processors and recycling facilities from purchasing railroad property from individuals without properly documenting the transaction.
This issue of stolen rail materials has become widespread throughout Pennsylvania as it affects both the railroad industry and the public safety of Pennsylvanians. As prices for scrap metals continue to climb, so do the amount of burglaries along our important rail lines.
My legislation would add railroad materials to the list of restricted materials in the Scrap Metal Theft Prevention Act of 2008.
Please contact Jon Hopcraft of my office at 787-2637 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Introduced as SB1077
