On Sunday, NewsHour Weekend revisits a story, originally reported on in July. Metal thefts, which have caused blackouts and traffic accidents, are on the rise in states across the country. Now, legislators in Ohio have enacted a new law, expanding on a Columbus city ordinance, that requires scrap dealers to check every customer's ID against an online database of convicted thieves who might be trying to sell what they've stolen, so that law enforcement can investigate thefts. NewsHour's Rick Karr reports on the new developments.
