PITTSBURGH A California bill that will place restrictions on how scrap metal sellers can be paid has been awaiting approval from Gov. Jerry Brown since Sept. 3.
The bill amends the states Business and Professions Code and will force nonferrous scrap sellers to wait three days before receiving payment.
This rule previously applied only to transactions exceeding $20. Customers who are redeeming $20 or less worth of beverage containers can be paid in cash at the time of the sale.
A recycler in the state said he is hoping the governor doesnt sign the bill because it is unjust and will raise operating costs for businesses.
