Interest Groups and Scrap Metal Ordinances

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the wake of increasing metal thefts, jurisdictions across the country have passed new laws or strengthened existing ones to stem the problem. Indianapolis recently passed two ordinances meant to reduce metal thefts. These regulations put extra restrictions on dealers that purchase items as salvage or scrap metal, including the requirement of a license. They also limit the types of scrap metals that can be purchased without authorization. This study analyzes public documents to identify the nature of opposition to and support for these ordinances. The findings are then applied to Indiana’s state legislation intended to curb metal theft. A case is made for the conflict/interest group theory of law.
