LANSING (WKZO) -- Legislation designed to crack down on the sale of illegally obtained scrap metal in Michigan is on the way to Governor Rick Snyder for his signature.  The state Senate Thursday concurred with a previously approved bill from the House, which caps instant payments to sellers at 25-dollars for certain items.  Critics are concerned that people looking to profit from stolen copper wire, catalytic converters, and air conditioners will bypass the requirements with smaller pieces sold at multiple scrap businesses.
