The Legislative Affairs Committee spun off a special Business Theft Task Force that is working with local police departments to explore possible language for a 2022 bill dealing specifically with the theft of catalytic converters. We’ve heard from many businesses of the cost and interruption of business due to an increased number of these types of thefts and the committee is taking a proactive approach to addressing the issue.
