is working with the Speaker of the House and Senate President Pro Tempore to pass legislation requiring documentation from the seller of a Catalytic Converter in the state of New Mexico.
Catalytic Converter theft is a significant issue facing auto dealers and citizens and NMIADA is working closely with the Legislature to get legislation passed that will make it illegal for junk yards to purchase anonymous catalytic converters. A written paper trail will allow law enforcement to effectively follow sales in the state.
This bill will receive it’s first hearing at the Senate Public Affairs Committee on either Wednesday or Friday this week.
We are asking interested dealers to participate in helping to pass this important legislation by:
1. Sending me your experience(s) of having catalytic converters stolen from your lot in the last couple of years;
2. Show up at the Committee hearing to testify about your own experience and why the bill is important (we will send out schedule once it is made by the Committee)
3. Call or email the Speaker of the House or Senate President Protempore in support of the bill.
