California's crazy law and warning for WVO collectors.

This crazy law was passed and signed by Terminator on October 05 2005.

http://www.thedwilsons.com/WVO/code.txt

19306. (a) Any renderer or collection center operator licensed
pursuant to this article or transporter registered pursuant to
Article 6.5 (commencing with Section 19310) who fails in any respect
to keep the written records required by this article, or to set out
in that written record any matter required by this article to be set
out in the record, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
(b) Every renderer, collection center operator, or transporter who
refuses, upon demand of any peace officer of this state or any
employee of the department, to exhibit any written record required
by this article, or who destroys that record within one year after
making the final entry of any information required by this article,
is guilty of a misdemeanor.
(c) Any violation of subdivision (b) is punishable as follows:
(1) For a first offense, by a fine of not less than five hundred
dollars ($500), or by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than
30 days, or by both the fine and imprisonment.
(2) For a second offense within a period of one year, by a fine of
not less than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by imprisonment in a
county jail for not more than 30 days, or by both the fine and
imprisonment. In addition to any other punishment imposed pursuant
to this paragraph, the court may order the defendant to stop engaging
in the business as a renderer, collection center operator, or
transporter for a period not to exceed 30 days.
(3) For a third or any subsequent offense within a period of two
years, by a fine of not less than two thousand dollars ($2,000), or
by imprisonment in a county jail for not more than six months, or by
both the fine and imprisonment. In addition to any other sentence
imposed pursuant to this paragraph, the court shall order the
defendant to stop engaging in the business as a renderer, collection
center operator, or transporter for a period of 30 days.

It was just a matter of time before "the man" had his hand out and in the pocket of WVO users.

Just curious, had there been any WVO accidents with spillage, fire, etc. in California? Why the tough law? I had heard of one decent-fire somewhere in the Northeast (MA possibly), but hadn't seen anything since.

The writing is on the wall. Looks like the days of the "grass-roots/unregulated" type WVO user in California will be coming quickly to an end.
