The Scrap Metal bill, SB11, was returned to the House Judiciary Committee for further action. The provision on aggravated criminal damage to property was amended to apply only when the damage exceeds $5000. The bill was again recommended to pass as amended by the committee. It is still unknown if the House will bring it to debate and action in the full House. The bill has passed the Senate. If it is passed by the House it will go to conference committee. If it is not passed by the House there is a desire in the conference committee to add it to something else. Either way, there is a desire in both chambers to pass the bill through the conference committee.
