Guam - Just as Operation Copperhead was initiated earlier this month to put an end to the rash of copper wire thefts on Guam, legislation has been introduced that would mandate inspections of metals at the Department of Revenue & Taxation before they are sold at scrap metal businesses. Bill 404 was introduced Senators Brant McCreadie and Dennis Rodriguez, Jr.

"What bill 404 does is it puts a layer of accountability when it comes to copper wire. I know the current statutes and mandates are not really working, so we have to do something different," said McCreadie. He adds Bill 404 is a companion measure to his Bill 395 that would increase civil penalties for scrap metal businesses who do not comply with reporting requirements.
