Removes language concerning compliance with a provision of the Recyclable Metal Purchase Registration Law. Removes an exception to a provision concerning restricted purchases when the seller produces written documentation reasonably demonstrating that the seller is the owner of the recyclable metal material or is authorized to sell the material on behalf of the owner. Removes definitions in a provision concerning purchase of a catalytic converter or its contents.
