  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  Section  1.  Section  69-g  of the general business law, as amended by
chapter 302 of the laws of 2007, is amended to read as follows:
  S 69-g. Records.  1.  Such  scrap  processor  shall  record  (i)  each
purchase  of any pig or pigs of metal, bronze or brass castings or parts
thereof, sprues or gates or parts thereof, utility  wire  or  brass  car
journals,  or  of metal beer kegs, and (ii) each purchase of iron, steel
and/or nonferrous scrap for a  price  of  fifty  dollars  or  more,  and
preserve  such  record  for  a period of three years; which record shall
show the date of purchase, name of  seller,  his  residence  address  by
street,  number,  city, village or town, THE LICENSE PLATE NUMBER OF THE
MOTOR VEHICLE DRIVEN BY THE SELLER AT THE TIME OF TRANSACTION, the driv-
er's license number or information from a government issued photographic
identification card, if any, of such person, or by such  description  as
will  reasonably  locate  the  seller,  the  type  and  quantity of such
purchase; and the scrap processor shall cause such record to  be  signed
by  the  seller  or  his  agent.  It shall be unlawful for any seller to
refuse to furnish such information or to furnish incorrect or incomplete
information. Such scrap processor shall also make and retain a  copy  of
the  government  issued  photographic identification card used to verify
the identity of the person from whom the scrap metal was  purchased  and
shall  retain  this  copy  in  a  separate  book, register or electronic
archive for two years from the date of purchase.
