Tentative deal reached on scrapping bill

(WXYZ) - State Senator Mike Kowall of White Lake says an agreement has been reached between committee members prohibiting immediate payment for scrap items of air conditioning units, copper wiring and catalytic converters.

Now the money will be sent to via mailed check or wire transfer, taking normally three days. All other items will be given no more than $25 at time of purchase from a scrap yard.

All items sold to scrap yards will require a picture identification.

The agreement must pass the Michigan House and Senate and could be presented to Governor Rick Snyder Friday.
