HB 1725 -- TICKET SCALPING
SPONSOR: Hosmer (Dolan)
COMMITTEE ACTION: Voted "do pass" by the Committee on Criminal
Law by a vote of 11 to 4.
This bill deletes provisions that penalize the resale of
sporting event tickets in excess of their purchase price.
FISCAL NOTE: No impact on state funds.
PROPONENTS: Supporters say that because ticket scalping is a
victimless crime, it should be repealed. Supporters also say
repealing the provisions would take away the control of sale
that out-of-state ticket brokers have and give it to the
individual ticket owners.
Testifying for the bill was Representative Dolan.
OPPONENTS: There was no opposition voiced to the committee.
