Description

Sales of secondhand building materials. Authorizes the chief of police or sheriff to refuse to issue a permit to allow a person to engage in the business of trading in secondhand building materials if the applicant has been convicted of a felony or crime of moral turpitude within three years preceding the application. The measure also (i) requires an applicant for a permit to provide his address, age, gender, and fingerprints; (ii) obligates junk dealers selling or acquiring secondhand building materials to report information about sales of secondhand building materials to the chief of police or sheriff; (iii) exempts authorized scrap sellers from the requirements; and (iv) provides that a person is deemed to be regularly engaged in the business of trading in secondhand building materials if he conducts 26 or more transactions within a year or offers for sale more than 600 pounds of secondhand building materials. Finally, the measure removes a provision making it unlawful for certain persons to "accept" certain secondhand metal items used by or belonging to certain utility or manufacturing companies; it remains unlawful to barter, purchase, exchange, or buy such items. Amends § 59.1-116.1, § 59.1-117, § 59.1-118, § 59.1-119, § 59.1-120, § 59.1-123, § 59.1-125, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
