NEW YORK — Connecticut has passed new metals theft legislation meant to combat the unauthorized sale of municipal property to scrap recyclers in the state.

The new law bans scrap metals recyclers from purchasing or receiving municipal property without a letter signed by the municipality’s chief executive officer authorizing the sale, and requires payment for any municipal property acquired by a recycler to be mailed to the municipality (amm.com, March 18).....
