WR served on the Catalytic Converter Theft Workgroup during the interim, formed by law last session. The final report was recently submitted to the Legislature. Representative Cindy Ryu (D-32), the sponsor of the workgroup law, has expressed interest in presenting some of the proposals to the Legislature for consideration.
These thefts have plagued WR members and their customers, and employees. WR applauds Rep. Ryu for championing this important issue to crack down on catalytic converter thefts, make them less attractive to steal in the first place, and hopefully help those less fortunate that are victims. We will be supporting proactive solutions to these crimes.
