2022 - Assembly Bill 2398 (Villapudua, Carlos), Catalytic Converters (Dead)
Office of Legislative Affairs
Would have made the possession of a detached catalytic converter a crime, punishable as a misdemeanor or a felony. The bill would have made this crime inapplicable to a person who demonstrates authorization to possess the detached catalytic converter by providing a certificate of title or registration showing the person’s interest in the vehicle from which the catalytic converter was detached, written authorization from the person holding the certificate of title or registration, or evidence that the catalytic converter was acquired in a lawful transaction. Failed passage in the Assembly Public Safety Committee.
