Bill Would Change How Businesses Sell Their Scrap Metals

ASSEMBLY, No. 3222  

This bill, which amends P.L.2009, c.8 (C.45:28-1 et seq.), requires scrap metal businesses to maintain, for at least five years, a record of all receipts or purchases of scrap metal, instead of only for those purchases in excess of 100 pounds or $50, as currently provided by law.  This bill also requires that scrap metal businesses make payment to any person delivering or selling scrap metal only by non-transferable check made payable to that person, to be mailed to an address provided by that person as required pursuant to existing law. 

The bill requires scrap metal businesses to send copies of all records maintained pursuant to law to the appropriate law enforcement agency at the close of each business day.  Under the bill, scrap metal businesses may accept delivery of scrap metal by motor vehicle only, and must record the license plate number of any motor vehicle which is used to deliver scrap metal. 

One problem NJECPAC has identified is that if passed an employer that sends their employee to the scap yard would not receive payment for their scrap. Their employee would receive a check via us mail for the employers scrap. NJECPAC Board of Governors sees this as a major flaw in the legislation and will be seeking an amendment from the Legislature addressing this and any other issues that the Board identifies with this legislation.

Senate Bill S2116 Would Grant Reciprocity Of All Professional Licenses

SENATE, No. 2116 

Senate Bill S2116 would grant reciprocity of all of New Jersey's Professional licenses to Licensees of other states was reviewed by NJECPAC. The Legislature subsequently amended the Bill addressing the concerns provided by NJECPAC.

The original bill would have granted reciprocity to out of state contractors to work in NJ but did not grant reciprocity to NJ Contractors to work in other states

The bill as Amended would exempt the Board of Examiners of Electrical Contractors from the provisions contained within S2116. Assembly Bill A1545 is identical to the Senate Version. View Legislation Here.
